We are looking for an experienced, well qualified and dynamic Speech & Language Therapist who has the ability to support the future development of our excellent provision for children with autism, severe learning and language and communication difficulties. We are looking for a therapist who is looking to develop their leadership skills and take the lead in our SLT team. The school employs four full-time Speech and Language Therapists, so this post provides the successful applicant with an opportunity to lead within a friendly, enthusiastic and skilled team whilst developing the service that supports the growing school. Training opportunities are available to develop skills to meet the needs of the role.

The post would suit an energetic and creative professional who is looking to make a difference to the lives of young people with autism and complex needs as well as furthering their own professional development.

The post holder will be an autonomous practitioner, providing highly specialist assessment, prognosis and a variety of therapy and intervention programmes in the management of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders at Phoenix School. You will be required to provide advice and training to others to enable them to support the development of children’s speech language and communication skills.

Phoenix School is successful, ambitious and forward-thinking. You will be joining an Outstanding School (November 2018) with strong leadership and committed staff team. Pupils are aged between 3 and 19 and make very good progress with access to a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum. We are an 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 several awards including International Schools 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.
