Are you looking for a great opportunity to work as part of a growing team making a big impact on these children’s education?

Would you like to be part of a brand new centre that will listen to your ideas and value you as a member of the new team?

How would you like to be involved in developing the centre over the next academic year?

If you are saying yes to those questions then don’t look any further because Castles Education has just what you could be looking for.

A client based in Lewisham, South London are looking to open a new resource base for primary aged children who have all been diagnosed with ASC/ASD and challenging behaviours. Some children have dual diagnosis which can also be ADHD, PDA, ODD and SEMH.

The unit is due to open in a temporary base in Lewisham in January 2018 and will move to a purpose built site, hopefully by Easter 2018. The temporary site is a short walk from Bellingham Station or Catford Bus Station.

Starting in January 2018 the centre will have 6 primary children to begin with but will have scope to have more children join the centre along with additional staff when needed. To start off, the centre will need a qualified and experienced teacher of ASC, along with 4 experienced teaching assistants. To join this exciting set up, you will need to be:

• Qualified. For the teacher post, you will need QTS, primary, secondary or overseas trained.
For teaching assistants, level 2 or above in childcare or teaching assistant.
• You will need to have relevant experience in working with children with ASC (Autistic Spectrum Condition or formally ASD).
• Be able to commit to a full time post from January 2018 working school term time only.
• Be able to travel to Lewisham.
• Have a current enhanced DBS on the update service or be prepared to have a new DBS carried out.

There is every chance these roles will become permanent for September 18 for the right candidates.

Interviews and trial days are taking place over the next week so apply today before you miss out. Opportunities in SEND like this do not come along very often
