Job Details

Everyone deserves an incredible future!

Become an Autism Learning Support Practitioner at our school Brick Lane, part of Options Autism and start working towards yours.

Brick Lane School in East London is a brand-new independent school offering education for students aged 5 years to 18 years with a primary diagnosis of Autism.

The school is located just 10 paces off the vibrant and cosmopolitan Brick Lane which is well served by public transport services including Santander Bikes. The school does have parking for staff however we encourage staff to make use of environmentally friendly alternatives and as a company the cycle to work scheme is available for all employees.

The aim of the school is to provide specialist individual support to each child, enabling them to reach their potential so they can live fulfilling and productive lives. We will provide the young people with as much freedom as possible while offering a safe and supervised environment.  This is achievable due to the dedication and support from a range of employed professionals across the company who are passionate, reliable and understanding including dedicated education, care and clinical teams.

The opportunity

Enjoy a rewarding education career and have a real impact on children and young people’s lives. Join an amazing team creating supportive, nurturing environments where our pupils achieve far more than they ever expected.

As a Autism Learning Support Practitioner, you will connect directly with the brilliant children and young people we care for, helping to make sure they get the very best from their education. Each individual has a diagnosis of Autism and may have additional needs. They have so much potential, and they will rely on you to guide their learning journeys bespoke to them.

You will help prepare learning materials and run classroom activities, with plenty of hands-on experience and some supervision too. You will take responsibility for their emotional and physical needs, supporting them to develop as individuals and engage with the world.

You will face challenges and overcome them as you flourish and thrive, sharing your skills and learning from others as your career takes you as high as you always dreamed you could go.

Every day will be different, but you will have all the support you need, with lots of skills and experience to draw on along with valuable advice and guidance too.

Who we are looking for

You don’t need any experience to join our team. If you come from hospitality, the army, outdoor activity centres or an office-based job but are eager to help vulnerable children and young people to live happy, fulfilling lives, this is the role for you.

You will be adaptable and ready to work in a variety of classroom roles, both indoors and outside according to individual need. Taking a responsive and caring approach, you may be running classroom activities, leading outdoor experiences or supervising children as they explore further afield.
