Vetro Recruitment are looking to appoint a suitably Qualified Speech and Language Therapist with a passionate and informed interest in Autism (ASC) and co-conditions within a Residential School setting in Frome, Somerset.

The successful applicant will have tangible experience supporting and facilitating 1:1 and group therapy to young people between the ages of 5 - 19 years.

Salary: Up to £30,000 per annum, dependent upon experience.

Hours: Up to an average of 44.66 hours per week, term time only.

The Organisation:

Set in its own grounds close to Frome town centre, this is an independent specialist day and residential school for children and young people aged 6 to 19 years with high functioning autistic spectrum disorders, including Asperger's Syndrome and associated difficulties.

They support children and young people from primary level, through Key Stages 2, 3 and 4, as well as offering a range of Post-16 options, both in-house and via partnerships with local colleges. Their aim is to prepare young people to become independent adults, and so they give equal attention to helping their students develop their personal and social skills as much as making academic progress.

They understand that many of the students that join this setting have previously had negative experiences in education. The skilled staff team and experienced therapy team work closely with young people to provide them with better opportunities for success and support them to fulfil their potential.

What we are looking for:

  • A sound knowledge of evidence based support within the field of ASC is required, ELKLAN training is desirable but not essential.
  • The successful applicant will have suitable experience supporting language and developmental delays, skilled in facilitating standardised assessment[s], scoring, analysis and creating bespoke programmes.
  • You will be proactive in disseminating best ways of working to the wider support team and will be confident to deliver onsite profession specific training to colleagues as and when required.

You will work in close partnership with a diverse team of Therapy, educational and care specialists, including our Occupational Therapists, Counsellor, Educational Psychologists and Dyslexia specialist to deliver tailored support that meets the needs of each young person.

You will be joining a supportive and experienced team of dedicated support staff, committed to delivering the very best care. You will be actively encouraged and supported to remain up to date with CPD and both internal and external training opportunities are available to you. The successful applicant will receive a bespoke internal induction programme and the ability to network with Therapists across other Priory sites.

The school has been specifically designed to provide a strong focus for both UK and international students who need different levels of support to succeed, thus allowing young people with autistic spectrum disorders, Asperger's Syndrome and associated difficulties to thrive effectively in an ever-demanding and complex society. Students have ambitions to live and work as self-reliant adults and we can help them to reach their goals with continued support, structure and guidance. The school welcomes students on a day or weekly residential basis for 38 weeks per year.
