An exciting opportunity has arisen to be a part of a new ASD Resource. This is an excellent opportunity to be a key member in teaching and supporting pupils and promoting the school’s new Indigo Resource for pupils with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, who have associated social, emotional and mental health needs. Our aim is to ensure that the new Indigo Resource provides the highest standard of education for the students in its care and you will be pivotal in ensuring this. We want to become a Centre of Excellence for the teaching of secondary school aged students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. All students will have Education, Health and Care Plans, and their placement in the resource will be in consultation with the local authority.
We are seeking to recruit a teacher with experience and/or a strong interest in supporting young people on the autistic spectrum. The role will suit a qualified teacher of either primary or secondary who can demonstrate energy, enthusiasm and the ability to teach effectively across a range of subject areas, and across all secondary age groups. You will have a flexible approach and will be able to meet the changing needs of our young people.
The successful candidates will:
- Experience of working with students with special needs, particularly Autism and social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
- Show a commitment to raising opportunities and progression of our learners and support them in all aspects of their learning both in the resource and in their mainstream lessons.
- Direct and mentor classroom support staff.
- Plan and teach differentiated lessons and support staff in the mainstream to further develop the pupils’ progression.
- Have the ability to envision, enthuse, inspire and motivate students, staff and parents.
Our staff are dedicated, talented professionals who go the extra mile for the students because they are committed to helping them realise their dreams, achieve the greatest possible success, overcome any personal challenges. Our goal is to ensure all doors remain open to them in the future.
Professional development is a strength here, thanks to our Teaching School. We offer a flexible CPD programme which staff can tailor to their own needs which includes coaching and training for new entrants to the profession and to support career returners. We are very happy to discuss flexible working arrangements including part-time working and job-sharing.
