Oaklands is an outstanding special school serving the London Borough of Hounslow that provides specialist education to students with severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple difficulties and autism. From September 2018 we have a Primary school (New Oaks), Secondary school (High Oaks) and a specialist independent SEN College provision (Great Oaks). We can cater for students aged from 4 to 25 across the Oaklands group.  We are at an exciting point in our development. We recently relocated to our purpose built new school building (close to Osterley Tube Station and other public transport links) that offers state of the art facilities for our students. In time, the primary and secondary schools will be based on two sites with New Oaks Primary moving back to Woodlands Road once refurbishment is completed.

Due to our rapid and continued expansion we are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, experienced job coach to support our young people aged 16 -19 within various work experience placements both on and off site that you have identified and developed. You will be patient, self-motivated and possess a positive attitude and good sense of humour. You must be a strong team player, organised and be able to work independently using your own initiative. We believe that all of our students are capable of making outstanding progress and we want to appoint individuals who share our belief and have the desire and drive to make this happen. Please refer to the job description and person specification for full details of the role. 

We value our employees and offer excellent training and support along with a pension scheme, Employee Assistance Programme and other well-being benefits.
