Are you an energetic and creative Speech and Language Therapist? Are you looking to make a difference to the lives of young people with autism and complex needs? Looking to further your own professional development? If so, come and join our team!

We are a growing therapy team and seek an enthusiastic, dynamic and reflective Speech & Language Therapist to support our excellent provision for children with autism, severe learning and language and communication difficulties. We welcome applications from current Band 6 therapists looking for a new challenge and also less experienced or newly qualified therapists looking to join an established service. Our therapy team will provide support, supervision and opportunities to work alongside both NHS SLTs and school commissioned SLTs offering a unique development opportunity. The school accommodates children aged 3-19 years with a variety of needs. We have adopted the SCERTS framework and work closely with Speech and Language Therapy Teaching Assistants within the classrooms to ensure a high level of support.  

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to contribute in this exciting development working across the schools. If you feel you have the skills, experience and drive to take on this role and become a member of our team, we would very much like to hear from you. 

Pupils are aged between 3 and 19 and make very good progress with access to a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum. We are accredited National Autistic Society School and have been praised for our creative approach to working with children with autism and with their parents. The school has won a number of awards including the NASEN Parental Engagement Award. 

This is an exciting opportunity in a school providing for children and young people, where change and challenge are key to what we do. Demand for places is high and having already increased our accommodation to admit new referrals we are now progressing plans to open a second school to meet demand.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to meet and work alongside the current lead for the team to support transition into this role. If you feel you have the skills, experience and drive to take on this role and become a member of our team, we would very much like to hear from you.
