Schools for vulnerable students are open and will maintain open as long as they can, now more than ever, these schools are safe space for their students. You must be passionate and sincere about your objectives within Mental Health and Autism.

This is a fascinating TA role set in the heart of Windsor and Maidenhead, focussed on positive reinforcement, ensuring a path for students who have been excluded from their mainstream education, back into the mainstream. This is a LSA role that requires patience, empathy and a lot of your time, there are zero quick cures and miracle solutions in a role like this. Some of the outstanding foundations you set, you may not get to see the pleasing outcomes immediately. Patience and empathy is the true skill here.

Ideal role for an Aspiring Clinical, Education or Forensic, Psychologist. Roles will also appeal to psychology graduates interested in Social, Youth and Criminal Justice. Looking at the Socio- Economic, class, race and faith factors that affect mental health and the approaches to mental health, is a crucial area.

This Psychology Graduate Mental Health Maidenhead LSA role in a specialist autistic school for boys and girls aged 3-16 that have switched from their mainstream education. There are no quick fixes here, if you have a utopian idea of being able to 'save' every student, you will not succeed. You may help plant ideas that you will not see the full, positive effects or end results from, know that they are there and will happen. The school is a great development base for Psychology graduates who are sincere and know your objectives.

Understanding the dichotomies, diversity and cultural effects on mental health in an area like Dorking, is vital to being able to have the stoic and durability nature to thrive in this role. Maintaining behaviour of the students, where possible and raising academic achievement, can be difficult.
