Your new role
ASEND is looking for a teaching assistant to support an 11 year old autistic boy at his home in Stanford-Le-Hope, alongside his current tutor. Playing computer and video games with him is very important to help build a relationship and be the way to progress his learning; gaming is a major interest of this young person. This is an opportunity to really make a difference in his life; allowing him to become even more independent and grow as a person.
This role is part time and an immediate start is available. The work is between now and the end of the school year, days and times can be flexible. There may also be time to work with him over the Summer holidays and continue in September.
We're looking for a candidate who:
- Has supported autistic children before.
- Is committed to overcoming barriers to learning.
- Ideally has an interest in computers and gaming (this is a bonus).
ASEND is a highly specialist SEND business, placing dedicated SEND professionals in school and services throughout the UK.
Established in 2011, ASEND has emerged as a leader in the SEND support sector. We have successfully placed professionals into schools, colleges and other institutions across the country, as well as providing an exceptional home tuition. As pioneers across the sector, we have helped to institute a unique and fresh approach to the teaching and learning of SEND pupils, many of whom have seen remarkable progress.
We see ourselves as a SEND company rather than a recruitment agency. Our Directors all have a unique understanding of SEND and between them share a wealth of knowledge and experience unparalleled in the field. Your experience will therefore feel very different as a result.
