The qualities needed for this post are dedication and enthusiasm as well as good social skills and a sense of humour. Previous experience and qualifications are not essential but we are looking to appoint a person who has a good standard of education and who would be prepared to learn new skills and grow with the role. Knowledge of children with ASD would be preferable but not essential. Please note this position will be reviewed annually subject to continuation of funding. This post would also suit anyone who is thinking of embarking on a career in teaching at some time in the future. SJB is a teaching school and is accredited as a SCITT (School Centre for Initial Teacher Training) which opens up exciting opportunities for those interested in training to teach. The SCITT provides a school led training route to gaining Qualified Teaching Status and our staff at SJB are very supportive of colleagues wishing to pursue this route.

The students supported by the Learning Support Department at SJB are assisted by a team of 16 staff. Some of the staff are attached to core subject departments, others support the students on a 1 to 1 basis. Several of our staff have been at SJB for many years and have a wealth of experience. We believe that the students who come to SJB are very fortunate to be taught in such an outstanding school, and the students who are nurtured by our Learning Support Department achieve amazing results. The staff who are employed in the Department are used in all areas of the curriculum and are encouraged to support the students in other areas of the school e.g. lunch clubs and after school activities.
