Teaching Assistant - Autism and Neurodevelopmental Difficulties

This is a permanent position of 32.5 hours per week, term time plus 5 days.

Salary Range: G02  £13,410 – £13,678

Closing date: Friday 7th May 2021.

Start Date: 7th June 2021


At Aberconwy we are at the start of developing additional learning provision for secondary age pupils with autism and associated neurodevelopmental difficulties. We opened two resourced classes of 8 pupils in September, with the potential for further development and extension in the future. This specialist provision is 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 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.


We therefore seek to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated Teaching Assistant to provide support for identified learners with autism and associated neurodevelopmental difficulties within our mainstream school context. They will work under the guidance of the Resource base teacher to provide support to students in class, or in small groups, particularly focusing on literacy and numeracy skills, social communication and behavioural difficulties. They will be fully immersed in the life of the resource provision and may also provide administrative support, as well as supporting students outside the classroom.
