Primary Teaching Assistants required for Autism Support in a special needs school in Hillingdon.
Axcis are currently working with a special needs primary school in the Hillingdon area that require full time teaching assistants to provide support for a number of their classes of students with ASD. The children will benefit from a TA who has experience in supporting students in a similar capacity. The primary teaching assistant will engage the children, 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 special needs primary school is based in an accessible location within the borough of Hillingdon and provides parking for all staff. 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
- Be available full-time
- Hold an enhanced DBS on the update service (if you do not have this, Axcis can assist you in attaining one)
This is a temporary position.
If you are interested, then please contact Naomi Bateson at Axcis Education on 020 7580 2956.
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.

All staff will be subject to our stringent vetting procedures, which include an enhanced DBS, full work history, references and a face-to-face interview.
