Specialist Resource Teacher: Autism and Neurodevelopmental Difficulties

Required from September 2020 (or as soon as possible thereafter): 

This is a full time permanent position

Salary: Main Teaching Scale + ALN Allowance

Closing Date: Friday July 20th 2020

At Aberconwy we are at the start of developing additional learning provision for secondary age pupils with autism and associated neurodevelopmental difficulties. With Conwy Local Authority, we are planning, in the first instance, to open two resource classes for secondary age pupils from across the LA, and are in the process of undergoing statutory consultation on this proposal. Due to the current circumstances in relation to Covid 19 and school closures, this consultation is currently paused; however, from September 2020 we are looking to appoint staff who will provide additional support for identified pupils with ASD whilst working alongside the leadership team in developing this proposal.
The post in the first instance will involve completing the statutory consultation, working with the school to develop the provision model, set up the resource provision and to provide teaching support for identified learners with autism and associated neurodevelopmental difficulties within a mainstream school context.

The proposal is for two resourced classes of 8 pupils to be opened, with the potential for further development and extension in the future. This specialist provision will be for learners with autism who do not have a learning disability, but who are experiencing significant difficulty accessing the mainstream curriculum in its entirety. Conwy Local Authority hopes that this proposal will be the first step in developing high quality, specialist provision across all key stages of education, with a clear remit for inclusion into mainstream education wherever possible and enabling pupils to have access to a full and varied curriculum. The provision will help support learners to develop the skills and confidence for transition out of school and on to further education opportunities in line with their aspirations and interests. The full consultation document can be found at www.conwy.gov.uk/educationconsultations.

We are looking to appoint two experienced, enthusiastic and committed teachers to fill these new posts.  Applicants should have extensive experience and knowledge of working with secondary age pupils with autism and associated neurodevelopmental difficulties, ideally in a mainstream school setting.
