Welcome to our Midlands regional office. Our small yet productive team in Birmingham works in partnership with a large number of SEN schools to cater for the SEN needs of the Midlands area.
There is great demand for specialist candidates here and we are always on the look-out for teaching assistants with EBD and ASD training, Team Teach qualified teachers, staff with experience in HI and VI, and PMLD candidates as well as school nurses. We understand your needs and are one of the few agencies that will look after you to the best of our ability. We always endeavour to match the right candidate to the right school so that both parties gain the desired advantage of a happy working relationship.
As part of our commitment to SEND and education we also conduct regular training courses for both candidates and clients alike, many of which are subsidized by Axcis to be offered at minimal cost and sometimes FREE to you. We are looking forward to a number of exciting events:

Meet the Staff
Our Midlands team always try as much as possible to take part in educational activities and other events that create a positive affect on the lives of the young people with SEND that we ultimately support. Below are a few of the activities they've been involved in.
Christmas Poem Competition
In November 2012 the Midlands office offered our SEN schools across the Midlands area the opportunity to get involved in an imaginative and creative Christmas Poem competition. All that was required to enter the competition was to create a poem including the words, Christmas, Axcis and Snow. There were fantastic prizes up for grabs including a posting of the winning school on our facebook page, two tickets to a top league 1 football match and toy vouchers.
Andy’s Olympics & Paralympics Relay 2012
In the spirit of the Olympics and Paralympics 2012, our soft and cuddly mascot, Andy, was focused on a different ‘gold’ – the creative and inspirational minds of all the valued young children in our schools. He took to the streets of the West Midlands on a relay race, beginning at Concorde House, heavily laden with delicious treats and accompanied by Terri and Stephanie. This was all done in an effort to spread the cheer of sportsmanship, motivation, perseverance and a winning attitude to schools in the area, promoting the belief that any dream - no matter what shape or form - is achievable.
Olympics & Paralympics Artwork Competition
Prior to the Olympics Axcis Midlands offered an artwork competition to all SEN schools across the Midlands. The objective was to allow all children with SEND the opportunity to get involved in the spirit of the Olympics and Paralympics 2012 by setting their creative spirit ablaze in the form of creating a poster illustrating their idea of the Olympics. This project was very well supported and the winning school, The Foundation of Conductive Education was awarded a £500 prize with the first placed pupil’s artwork printed on a t-shirt.
Mainstream Teachers interested in transferring to SEN
Even though our main focus is on servicing SEN schools, we often service mainstream schools as well and we therefore understand that there are many mainstream teachers that would like to work within special needs but are not sure how to transfer their valuable teaching skills to make that transition. Well, we are here to help you!
We have supported many mainstream teachers in the transition to becoming SEN teachers - after all it’s quite likely that many mainstream teachers would have come across ASD, Dyslexia, EBD or some form of MLD within their classes.
If you wish to develop your career in the area of special educational needs then one option would be to become a teaching assistant within an SEN school for a few weeks so that you can gain experience as well as observe the teaching techniques used by the class teacher. This will also allow you the opportunity to decide what special needs you would be comfortable working with long-term or permanently, and will also help you to develop your career and skills.
Register with us and our team will endeavour to find you the best opportunity to suit your skills.
