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.

About the school:

Helen Allison School is an independent National Autistic Society day and residential school opened in 1968. Currently the school has 83 pupils aged between 5 -19.

Helen Allison is a warm and welcoming school for children with autism that has a long and impressive history of providing specialist education to autistic children. At its heart is a never-ending desire to continue the legacy of the first few autism schools and to continually innovate and be led by knowledge of best practice.

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.
