  • oversee the work of support staff working with the post-holder

You should be enthusiastic and motivated and able to manage your own workload. You must be flexible, approachable and able to communicate with a range of professionals, parents and the young people themselves. You should have some experience of working with children and young people with Autism and/or other Special Educational Needs.
