Furze Platt Senior School is proud to host the Shine Department, which helps young people with autism thrive and succeed in a mainstream school environment. We have an exciting opportunity for someone to work with our outreach team and provide support and training to schools within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
The successful applicant will be responsible for managing a caseload of students with a diagnosis of autism in mainstream education settings. Working collaboratively with school staff to provide strategies and skills and enable them to improve their understanding of autism to allow them to support ASD students with progress and attainment is an important aspect of this role. You would be responsible for carrying out individual observations of students in their school environment and the provision of a written report detailing recommendations of actions to help support them. You would also deliver targeted programmes to students either on a one to one basis or in groups and attend multi-agency meetings to provide advice and support in relation to students’ needs within school.
If you have extensive experience of working with students with ASD we would welcome your application. Specialist training will be provided to the successful candidate. Use of a car is essential for this role as it requires visiting other schools in the Windsor & Maidenhead area (expenses will be covered).
For further information about this role and in order to complete a Support Staff application form please refer to our school website. Application forms should be returned by email. Only applications submitted on the school application form will be considered.
Closing date: Monday 10 May 2021
Interviews will take place: w/c 10 or 17 May 2021
