I am working with a specialist school for children and young people from the ages of 8-16, with a primary diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Condition. It is a beautiful facility surrounded by gardens and is a safe and supportive environment for their students.

All the students have complex needs associated with Autism, including Learning Disabilities; Speech, Language & Communication Needs and Complex Sensory Needs, and all are vulnerable. The school know that with the right support all their young people can thrive, progress and live lives that are rewarding and fulfilling - and this is where you and the amazing support team comes into its own!

Description

* This role requires you to support children and young people in a range of on and off-site activities ensuring that all duties are carried out to a high standard. Activities will include trips to the community, excursions to surrounding countryside, shops or sports centres, museums, castles and so on.
* You will need to be an excellent team member, as you will work closely alongside your colleagues.
* You will also be required to provide written reports and be involved in the development and implementation of placement and support plans.

Requirements

* Whilst it would be desirable for candidates to have an NVQ or QCF Level 2 or 3 in Health and Social Care this is not essential.
* Prior experience within the Education would also be desirable but not essential as every successful candidate will be given a comprehensive induction course and training.
