Job/Person Summary

This is a new and exciting role at The Cowplain School in our provision for students with autism.  You will lead learning activities for small groups within our “Autistic Resourced Provision” (ARP).  This is our provision funded by the local authority for autistic students with Education Health & Care Plans (EHCP), who need additional support to access a mainstream school.  Initially the role will also require supporting autistic students in the classroom.  As the number of students accessing this provision grows the role will focus on supporting students in the ARP.

You will work with students from all year groups to help them access their learning. It will include developing and preparing engaging and creative resources for specific interventions. These will be within an agreed system of supervision, as directed by the SENCo.  It is important for you to establish productive working relationships with pupils, acting as a role model and setting high expectations.  This includes using behaviour management strategies, in line with the school’s policy and procedures. 

Experience of working with young people in a school with autism is essential. Above all, you will need patience and resilience and a desire to advocate for each student with whom you work.

Applicants will need to demonstrate effective classroom management skills and hold GCSE English and Mathematics at Grade C as a minimum requirement.
