COVID-19 notice: As schools begin their phased return we are continuing to safely recruit education staff through online registrations and telephone interviews

The Position:

SANZA Teaching Agency is currently looking for an experienced and energetic learning support assistant to work on a 1:1 basis with a Year 1 child with Autism.

Working with this child is incredibly rewarding and the impact that you can have, academic and social, will last a lifetime!

The classroom teacher and SENDCo will still have ultimate responsibility for the child's learning but you will be empowered to support the student's achievement levels and help them to realise their potential.

Using the International Primary Curriculum, you will use a practically-based curriculum supported by multi-sensory teaching and learning which engages all types of learners.

This full-time position will be contracted long term, starting immediately (September 2020) and running for the duration of the Academic year (until July 2021). The salary for this role will be paid at a daily rate of £70-90.

The environment:
An OFSTED rated 'outstanding' Anglican academy (part of the SDBE MAT) which seeks to "nurture faith and inspire success through innovative teaching and foster independence through respect for one another and a love of learning"

What the school offers:
*The newly expanded school offers state-of-the-art facilities, amazing school trips and excellent links to teacher training schools within the high performing multi-academy trust - which promotes excellence, inclusion and diversity.
*It is an inclusive and supportive school rooted in Christian values.
*Enriches and develops best practise whilst celebrating success.
*Exposure to the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). Originally designed for international schools and based on the English National Curriculum, the IPC has become increasingly popular in British schools thanks to its practical and creative topic-based approach to teaching and learning. Take a look into the Mileposts for Year 1 before interview!

The location:

You! To join us in being successful in applying for this role, you will be:
*A committed learning support assistant with a record of raising attainment for SEN pupils
*Energetic and enthusiastic about making learning accessible, enjoyable and enduring
*Experience of working with individuals on the Autism Spectrum
