Specialist Teacher - Autism Team
Required from January 2020 (or earlier) we are looking to appoint an outstanding and experienced Specialist Teacher, on a full time basis, to join the SISS team and work with pupils with Autism.
Solihull Specialist Inclusion Support Service (SISS) is a high quality, highly valued local service working closely with Solihull’s maintained schools, academies and settings to support children and young people with a range of Special Educational Needs.
Working in the Autsim Team you will be allocated a number of schools to support a caseload of children that could cross the age range from Year 1 to Year 11, all of whom have a diagnosis of ASD.
It will be your role to support the educational development of the children on your caseload and their inclusion within mainstream schools. This will involve a variety of working scenarios including; individual work, small group interventions, supporting the development of whole school approaches to Autism and delivering training. We are an affiliated training hub for the Autism Education Trust and the AET framework underpins the majority of the support we provide to schools.
You will have substantial experience of meeting the needs of children and young people with Autism and have an extensive knowledge and understanding of the implications of Autism for an individual.
You will also have relevant experience of working with parents and other professionals and have worked successfully as part of a team, including multidisciplinary teams.
Positive communication skills are essential to ensure you can develop successful relationships with schools.
You will be expected to travel around the Borough of Solihull supporting the children on your caseload.
You will find that we are an exceptionally supportive service to work for and working with us is both enjoyable and rewarding.
