Are you an experienced TA in Autism? Axcis want to hear from you! Axcis have a vacancy for a teaching assistant at a well respected specialist school in Yeovil working 1-1 with a secondary aged child with Autism, aged 15.
Rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, this fantastic specialist school uses a range of innovative teaching methods to help their students make the most of their educational experience. The school is small but well resourced and has a fantastic atmosphere upon entering the grounds. Situated in the centre of Yeovil and with excellent links to public transport the school is easily accessible.
The role starts in February and is five days a week, full time and will go on till at least Easter but potentially till the end of the academic year. The position is general in-class support - you will need to have previous experience of working with children with autism. Routines are important to the child and they have very limited language and they communicate using Makaton. You will be expected to do some personal care.
If you are a caring, friendly and patient individual then this could be just the kind of role you're looking for. The ideal candidate will be an experienced SEND teaching assistant who has worked with children with autism before in a special needs environment.
If you're looking for a supply agency that offers work in special schools and/or alternative provisions then Axcis is the recruitment agency for you. As sponsors of the National Autistic Society and other notable SEND organisations, Axcis takes it duty of care to the profession seriously and we do our best to find only the best staff for the schools we work with. Many of our consultants are ex-teachers or support staff with SEND experience, giving Axcis unparalleled knowledge of the sector.
This is a temporary position.
If you are interested, then please contact Emma Court at Axcis Education on 0117 373 6127.
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.
