Are you passionate about supporting children with additional needs? Are you keen to make a difference to a child's primary education experience? Protocol Education are currently recruiting for an Autism Support Worker to work full time at a school in the centre of Bristol. The role will primarily be supporting a child on a 1:1 basis meaning that an ability to build trust and create positive working relationships with children is essential in the successful candidate.

Elements of the role will also include supporting the teacher with whole class learning and behaviour management as well as running interventions on a small group basis where necessary. All intervention work will be provided, if not guided by the class teacher.

- Be positive, proactive and patient 

- Be willing to work as a team, taking advice from other colleagues and senior members of staff as well as sharing their own ideas
