We are currently working with a Special Educational Needs school in East London. They are currently looking to recruit a teaching assistant to start in September 2019, who has experience working within SEN, specifically autism.

The school caters for primary and secondary aged students who have Autism and Asperger's syndrome. The school is very well managed and is rated as "Outstanding" by Ofsted, but it does have its challenges due to the range of the needs of the students, including some challenging behaviour, making this a physically and mentally challenging role.

The school is within walking distance of 2 London Overground Stations, a mainline train Station and is on numerous popular bus routes.

You will be expected to work within a small class usually numbering between 4 to 5 students. Each class has a teacher and 2 to 3 teaching assistants, enabling all pupils to receive the appropriate amount of care and support. This school also tries to take committed staff on permanent contracts within 6-9 months and there can be teacher training opportunities further along the line if you do well there.

Key skills and experience needed:

SEN experience is essential, preferably with young people with autism / ASD
Previous support work within a school or other child related experience
Strong behaviour management
One to one and small group work
