Job Advert - Division Information

Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK. With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Job Advert Location Description

At Priory Education we are proud of our reputation for delivering quality education and care services with positive outcomes for children and young people aged 5 to 25 who have experienced difficulties in their previous education placements.

Tadley Court school is set in a beautiful semi rural location with four acres of well maintained grounds. We are a day school specialising in the education and care of children and young people between the age of 5 and 19 years who are diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum with associated learning difficulties. Our children and young people may also exhibit challenging behaviour as a result of their communication difficulties and lack of social understanding.

We offer a safe, structured and predictable environment where students can develop the skills needed to live as independently as possible allowing them to make real life choices as they approach and reach adulthood.     

Job Advert Role Description

Do you have experience of working in a special needs education setting? Is the time right for you to make the move to a supervisory role? If yes, this post would certainly suit you.

We are looking to recruit a Senior Learning Support Assistant.  You will support the effective delivery of education and independence programmes through the effective supervision of a small team of Learning Support staff. Acting as a positive role model you will provide guidance for your own team and contribute to their performance and professional development.

The successful candidate will have the ability to balance conflicting priorities presented during the school day, address unpredicatable situations and the changing requirements and needs of students and staff.

To succeed you will posses:

•           Emotional resilience

•           Flexibility, resourcefulness

•           A strong 'can do' attitude

•           Highly developed organisational skills

•           Effective communication skills

•           Previous experience in a special needs environment/school would be desirable but not essential as full training will be given.

If you would like to find out more or if you have specific questions to ask before making an application please contact Dianne Price, School Business Manager on 07795 636193.
