The Marlborough Centre is part of the Rivermead Inclusive Trust and due to a recent expansion we are seeking to recruit Teaching Assistants to work as part of our vibrant and specialised team. We are a specialist primary provision for 80 children with complex needs on the autistic spectrum. We are seeking to appoint enthusiastic, creative and inspirational teaching assistants to join our team.

The Marlborough Centre has developed into a more specialist provision enjoying newly created therapy spaces including sensory play rooms and a bespoke playground area. We pride ourselves on being able to offer every child an individualised curriculum based on their priority needs. Enrichment activities such as horse riding and forest school visits further enhance our curriculum. We believe every child is capable and deserving of the very best in teaching and learning. We work as one team to fulfil this aim across the Centre.

As part of the Rivermead Inclusive Trust staff can expect:

• A positive working environment
• Prioritised staff wellbeing
• CPD opportunities to develop professionally in specialist areas
• National terms and conditions
• Rigorous safeguarding training

As a Trust we recognise the importance of helping all children achieve their full potential; emotionally, socially, physically and academically.

Are you…

• Someone with a passion for working with children with complex needs?
• Hard working?
• Dedicated?
• Resilient?
• A good team player?
• Able to be pro-active and use initiative?
• Patient and able to be flexible in your working?
If so, you would be a great addition to our team here at the Marlborough Centre!


All candidates must have Level 2 qualifications (i.e. GCSE grade C and above or equivalent) in English and Maths.
Due to the conditions and complex needs of the pupils at the Marlborough Centre, continuity and consistency of support is vitally important. Therefore, candidates will need to commit to full working hours of the post.
