  • Have excellent communication skills
  • Have ABA training, be familiar with PECS and Makaton

The school can offer;

  • Supportive staff and effective leadership
  • Tailored provisions for individual SEN pupils
  • Inclusive classrooms removing barriers to achievement
  • A creative curriculum which engages the pupils
  • Training and CPD courses

Why you should apply;

  • Working with special needs is a very rewarding job, seeing children progress and grow in confidence because of your one to one support
  • School hours give you a good work/life balance
  • Opportunity to continue or potentially go permanent at the school if it is right for you

All applicants will be subject to Remedy Educations strict safeguarding processes.
