ABOUT PRIOR'S COURT

Prior's Court was set up by Founding Patron Dame Stephanie Shirley, whose vision of a centre of excellence for children with autism became reality with the opening of Prior's Court School in 1999. We have since grown to support around 80 young people with autism aged between 5-25 years with the opening of Prior's Court Young Adult Provision in 2011.

Since opening, our autism practitioner / support worker team has grown from around 20 to 500 and we have built a reputation as a leading edge educational, vocational, and residential facility for young people with autism. Working with our young people can be challenging but extremely rewarding. Read more about what it's like to work at Prior's Court and the difference you can make here.

THE ROLE

We require a qualified, highly motivated and enthusiastic teacher to work in an educational environment that provides a specialist approach to autism. The successful applicant will have a resilient and calm manner in order to fully support our students to achieve maximum independence.

Experience of teaching children with special educational needs and autistic spectrum disorders will be an advantage but is not essential; a comprehensive training package plus continuous professional development in the field of autism will be provided.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a supportive team in a forward thinking organisation. If you are interested in being included in a committed team that makes a difference, learning more about autism, training and career development we would love to hear from you.

Our thorough training and induction programme will ensure you have the support, skills and tools you need to deliver quality care for each young person. 

Prior’s Court School is aligned with Teachers Pay and Conditions and SEN1.

BENEFITS

Staff working directly with our young people are the key to their progress and achievements and we aim to make them feel valued and supported with training in autism along with knowledge and skills they need to do a great job and develop their careers. Find out more about the benefits we offer.
