Full Time Teaching Assistant Required in Croydon
Axcis is working with a special needs primary school in Croydon which requires a TA to work with key stage 1 pupils aiding their learning as well as supporting them with every day activities. The role will require 1:1 support, specifically with children who are on the autistic spectrum, as well as working in small groups. This is a full time role and would be a fantastic opportunity for a TA experienced with autism/ASD who wants to work ongoing, in a rewarding SEND environment.
The primary school is 2 form entry and a short walk from East Croydon station as well as having on site parking available. The school also provides an education to children with additional SEND needs such as communication difficulties, and therefore someone with experience in both ASD and speech and language difficulties, is desirable.
You will be working with an excellent team and support network with a teacher and at least two teaching assistants per class.
The successful candidate will:
- Have teaching assistant experience working with children at primary school level, ideally with children who are on the autistic spectrum.
- Ideally have team teach training - however we can provide training on this.
- Have a basic understanding of PECs and Makaton.
- Excellent communication skills.
- Be approachable and have a good sense of humour.
Working hours are 8.30am to 4pm, Monday to Friday and pay ranges from £75 to £85 per day, depending on experience.
