Key Responsibilities:

  • Provide one-to-one and small group support to students with ASC, both in and out of the classroom.
  • Assist students with academic tasks, including reading, writing, and numeracy, adapting teaching methods to suit individual learning styles.
  • Implement strategies and interventions to support students' social communication, emotional regulation, and independence.
  • Collaborate with teachers and other professionals to develop and implement individualised education plans (IEPs) and behaviour support plans (BSPs).
  • Monitor student progress, behaviour, and well-being, and communicate effectively with parents and colleagues.


  • Previous experience working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and/or SEND in an educational or support setting is desirable.
  • A genuine passion for supporting individuals with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) and a commitment to promoting their inclusion and well-being.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to build positive relationships with students, parents, and colleagues.
  • Patience, empathy, and resilience in supporting students with diverse needs.
  • Flexibility and adaptability to respond effectively to the changing needs of students and situations.

Why Join Us:

  • A supportive and collaborative school community committed to inclusive education and professional development.
