Help make an Everyday Breakthrough happen by joining our team.
A breakthrough can seem like the smallest thing, but it can make the world of difference to someone on the autism spectrum. By becoming a Teacher at The National Autistic Society you’ll help make Everyday Breakthroughs happen more often..
We are looking for a Teacher in Helen Allison School based in Meopham or Longfield. You’ll be working with autistic adults/children/and their families in a school environment.
We are a leading outstanding residential school for children with Autism from the age of 5-19 years. Our school stands in the forefront in the education of children with Autism and is described as a Beacon of Excellence (OFSTED January 2017).

You will have a proven track record of enabling children and young people to make good and outstanding progress over time, both academically and within interpersonal skills.

Working as part of the team you will ensure each student makes good progress and is well prepared for the best opportunities and experiences in later life by delivering high quality learning experiences.
When you step into our dynamic and innovative school it is immediately obvious how much staff care about every single student and that students enjoy being here. Children and young people with autism can present challenging behaviours and you will need the confidence and resilience to deal with these. You will be committed to meeting all of our children and young people’s complex need, holding high expectations; this will involve careful planning, differentiation and often a creative and innovative approach.
If you have genuine passion and enthusiasm to join our dynamic team and don’t want to settle for second best - we want to hear from you.
We need you to be experienced in teaching in an SEN setting, able to develop excellent outcomes for AS pupils across the curriculum, experienced in managing class teams and able to individualise curriculum needs for students.Along with a host of benefits – from shopping discounts to flexible working and a competitive pension scheme - we’ll make sure you get excellent autism-specific training to further your career in social care.
You may have a personal connection, a desire to work with or real life experiences working with autistic people. You might not have lots of experience yet, but if you share our values and are willing to make a difference to the lives of autistic people, we’d love to hear from you.
