Are you a qualified teacher with SEN experience? Have you managed a team? Would you relish the chance to escape the constraints of a classroom environment?
You will lead a team of Teaching Assistants who work 1:1 and 2:1 with young people who have autism, a learning disability and/or mental health challenges. We provide a bespoke curriculum for each student, working with them at home, in the community, or via our College partnerships across the area. We teach the life skills each young person will need as they grow to adulthood, focusing on each student’s particular interests and ambitions.
You will manage the planning and implementation of the curriculum, ensuring a full educational programme is developed for each young person, meeting their learning, social, emotional and developmental needs.
Note: This is a full-time role, 52 weeks a year, working 38 hours a week.
What we need from you
You must be a Level 5 qualified teacher with management experience and have worked with children or young people who have complex needs.
You’ll be a driver with your own transport, as learners are based around the area.
No Limits is part of the national charity MacIntyre. We provide bespoke integrated education and support programmes for young people with autism and/or a learning disability. We have long recognised that a conventional classroom education is not right for every pupil. We ensure young people get the support they need as early as possible.
Training and Development
At Macintyre we fully support your training and development. We know it can be daunting to start a new job, and not everyone learns the same way, so throughout your probation we will provide you with a mixture of eLearning, face-to-face training and mentoring support whilst on the job.
But it doesn’t stop there – throughout your career with us you will have access to our own dedicated in house Learning and Development team, Quality Specialists and HR Teams. These teams, along with your Programme Manager, will provide you with opportunities to learn and develop professionally.
