Primary Teaching Assistant required for 1:1 Autism Support in Hillingdon.
Axcis are currently working with a mainstream primary school in the Hillingdon area that require a full time teaching assistant to provide 1:1 support for a year 4 pupil with autism. The child enjoys science and art but often struggles with maintaining focus and will benefit from a TA who has experience in supporting students in a similar capacity. The primary teaching assistant will engage the child, providing them with creative learning tools if and when they become distracted from the lesson. This role is ongoing with the potential to become long-term.
The mainstream primary school is based in an accessible location in the Hillingdon area and provides parking for all staff. The school caters for primary aged children with classes of up to 20 children, a few of whom will have children with aspects of special needs. The school is a strong advocate for providing the necessary support to pupils that require it. Therefore, they have facilitated the building with a sensory and therapy room to ensure each child has the tools to develop within a mainstream environment.
The ideal candidate for this Primary Teaching Assistant role will:
- Have experience working in either a school, care or childcare setting
- Have an understanding of autism and knowledge of helpful behavioural strategies to support children with their development
- Show creativity and patience in their approach to the role
- Hold an enhanced DBS on the update service (if you do not have this Axcis can assist you in attaining one)
Axcis offer a range of CPD training courses as well as other online resources to provide you with additional knowledge that covers many aspects of SEND. Should you have any questions, our friendly team are always on hand to offer assistance.

This is a temporary position.

This is a temporary position unless otherwise stated.
Please note: The details of this job are correct as of the start of the school closures. We anticipate that there will still be a need to fill this vacancy either on the expected timescale (as many of the schools we work with will remain open to support SEND/Keyworker children) or when schools re-open. We are therefore continuing to accept applications but please bear with us as there may be a delay on the listed start date due to the fact that the situation is continually evolving.
