Job description

A specialist school for autistic children on the borders of Hammersmith and Ealing is looking for support workers with the ability to work with challenging behaviours and severely autistic children between the ages of 15 and 19.

The school can customise a creative and engaging curriculum for all students enabling everyone to progress and develop. The school pride themselves on offering students a caring and bespoke curriculum creating a positive atmosphere for all.

This role is purely for those who want to make a young person's life better. People with autism are so often misunderstood however with the right guidance and support they can achieve and succeed the same way anyone else does.

The ideal candidates for this position will have:

•A creative personality
•A willingness to learn
•Good understanding of special education needs and in particular autism
•Experience in managing challenging behaviour

To work in this school you need to be committed in giving children the best care. The school trust individuals to work 1:1 but to also offer additional support to those that need it at particularly challenging times. Empathy is a key component to a successful candidate for this position. The students at this school view the world differently and often require time and space to understand many tasks.

If you ae also looking to work during the holidays this school also offer work through the holidays.

If you can commit to this position you will be given the opportunity to access the CPD programme at the school giving you valuable experience and recognised qualifications.

If this role is of interest to you, please feel free to contact John at Protocol Education on 0203 219 7740 for further information. Alternatively, please send an updated CV to john.sayell@protocol-education.com
