Learning Mentor (Teaching Assistant)
Who we are
We are the leading UK charity for people with autism and their families. We provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for people with autism. We are proud of the difference we make.
Who we are looking for
We are a forward thinking Autism Specific Specialist Free School seeking Learning Mentors with a passion for improving life outcomes for every learner.
We were recently inspected in November 2017. The School was rated as Good.
Supported by the National Autistic Society Academies Trust, we cater for up to 60 young people aged 4-19 with Autism and Asperger Syndrome. As a part of the NAS Academies Trust, we are developing significant professional and working partnerships with the already established Independent NAS schools drawing on knowledge and expertise through professional working relationships to ensure best practise is shared.
This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of the school’s development where you will be working closely with the Class Teacher and HLTA’s to support a small class of young people with a diagnosis of Autism.
We aim to deliver the highest level of education and experiences to ensure the best life chances become a sustainable reality for every young person (on an individual needs led basis). Together, we will create a safe, positive and structured environment in which every young person is respected and encouraged to achieve independence (through academic, employment and personal skills development).
To be considered for this role, you will need to be able to demonstrate a desire for improving pupil outcomes (including those of high aspiration and vision). You will also offer a flexible approach to your role and be confident to support a range of subjects in a small group and across various levels of academic ability.
Wednesday 1.30pm to 4.30pm
Thursday 8.30am to 4.30pm
Friday 8.30am to 3.30pm
