PECS and Makaton Support Teaching Assistant job | Autism Support | KS1 | Islington | Immediate Start

Your new school
You will be working in a large two form entry Primary School based within Islington within close proximity to several stations and bus routes. The school itself has an excellent reputation within the borough and is very supportive of the surrounding community taking part in numerous events and charity days. The school prides itself on the opportunities available to staff in order to progress within your career onto the next level or further your training within your current job role and they fully support on-going training and development.

Your new role
You will be supporting a child in a year 2 class with Severe Autism on a one to one basis. The child is non-verbal and so requires someone who can communicate with him using PECS and/or Makaton to ensure that he is able to access the curriculum and work within the classroom. You will work with the child towards set targets made by the SENCo by following his daily timetable and ensuring a set routine is in place to support the child effectively. You will also have the opportunity to work closely with the SENCo in establishing targets, routines and goals for the child you are working with.

What you'll need to succeed
In order to be successful for this position, you must be experienced in supporting children with various SEN, specifically Autism and be confident with the use of PECS and/or Makaton. You will have worked closely with external professional bodies and SENCos in a prior position and have the ability to build an excellent rapport with children and parents.

What you'll get in return
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is looking to gain further responsibility within their role while continuing to support children on a one to one basis due to the involvement you will have with setting the child’s targets and routines. The school is also renowned for offering excellent training opportunities and career development to staff members.
