Are you a strong and resilient Autism Support Worker looking for a challenging and rewarding role in a fantastic special school for children with Autism and SEMH needs?

Do you have experience helping children with SEMH needs feel calmer and more settled in a school or youth work environment?


I am now working with a fantastic and supportive SEN school in the London Borough of Wandsworth who are seeking an experienced Autism Support Worker. You will work 1:1 with a pupil who needs support with challenging behaviour and help to feel as calm and settled as possible so they can learn effectively. This role requires a strong and resilient person who would be a strong role model.


Requirements of a Autism Support Worker

  • Experience with challenging behaviour – this role would really suit someone who has worked in a PRU or SEMH school, has worked as a Pastoral Officer in a school, or has experience with challenging behaviour as a Youth Worker.
  • Experience working to support pupils with physically and emotionally challenging behaviour
  • A resilient personality and an ability to build rapport quickly with staff and students.
  • De-escalation training would be a bonus for this role; however, the school also provide their own specialised de-escalation training
  • An interest in mental health and seeing behaviour as a form of communication is essential for this role


What to Expect as a Autism Support Worker

  • The opportunity to work in a brilliant SEN school alongside a highly supportive team
  • The opportunity to really make a difference in the life of a pupil with Autism and SEMH needs.
  • Long-term to permanent positions available
  • The opportunity for a good work-life balance due to school time hours.
  • The opportunity to develop your skills as a Behaviour Mentor.


This challenging and highly rewarding role requires a strong and resilient personality and a strong drive to help and support children with additional needs.
