ASD Primary Teaching Assistant

Smile Education are currently looking to speak to Teaching Assistants who have an interest and experience of supporting pupils with Autism.

We are working with a number of primary schools in south west Birmingham that have pupils who require additional support with their academic and social learning.  These schools have been given additional funding which means they can take on extra support staff/Teaching Assistants.

For after the Easter Holidays - all being well with the current and ever changing environment we are in with Covid-19 – I have schools in the following areas that all require Teaching Assistants on a five day a week basis for a combination of short and long-term placements:
  • Edgbaston (B16)
  • Harborne (B17)
  • Selly Oak (B29)
  • Northfield (B31)
Working with autistic pupils requires Teaching Assistants who are patient, understanding, and friendly with a willingness and desire to make learning accessible and fun for the pupils they work with.

Depending on the individual pupil(s) there will be a need in some schools to work solely on a one-to-one basis requiring candidates that can develop strong working bonds/relationships with the pupils they support.

Ideally, schools are keen to meet candidates that have had previous experience of special educational needs and importantly autism. However, myself and schools are seeking candidates with the right character and motivation to work in this area.

As those with previous experience know these types of position, whilst sometimes challenging, can be extremely rewarding and a great learning experience for anyone with an eye on becoming a teacher or Educational Psychologist.

For more information or a friendly chat about working with Smile Education please call Patrick on 0121 392 6581 or send me an email.  Alternatively, apply for this position online and I’ll give you a call.

Smile Education is committed to safeguarding children. Each applicant will be expected to undertake compliance checks including Prohibited list, Barred list, DBS and Qualifications.
