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 Teachers (specialist areas - Primary/English) in Sybil Elgar School in Southall. You’ll be working with autistic children in a school environment.

Working with children and young adults with special educational needs comes with its challenges, and our valued staff join us knowing that to have made a positive impact on a young person’s learning development is priceless.
