I am currently recruiting energetic, dedicated and experienced Care Assistants to work in the Autism Unit of a very good Primary School based in Basildon.

As a Learning Support Assistant you will be supporting students with ASD/ Autism, Mild to Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), Complex Needs, and Severe to Profound Multiple Learning Difficulties (SLD/ PMLD).
