Chiltern Way Academy (CWA) is a cutting edge and transformational Special Needs school providing high-quality education, care and therapies for the huge range of need that exists across the behaviour spectrum. Our Prestwood campus works with students on the Autistic spectrum and our Wendover campus works with students with a range of social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs.

 

We aspire to provide a “language rich” environment where therapeutic strategies support a wide range of Speech, Language and Communication difficulties, incorporated into a holistic approach. We value the input of professionals to help shape the supports we provide to our students and their involvement in the development of the school as a whole. 

 

We wish to appoint innovative, creative and experienced Speech & Language Therapists to work as part of our evolving, multi-agency team to develop:

  • an integrated, specialist learning environment
  • delivery and planning of specialist, targeted and universal interventions/ strategies
  • a staff CPD program

 

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to a growing therapy service for someone interested in a collaborative approach with specialist colleagues and a clinical interest with our diverse cohort.

We are looking for:

  • an excellent communicator
  • a strong team player
  • an ability to work on your own initiative
  • an empathetic and positive manner

 

We can offer you:

  • opportunities for CPD and clinical supervision
  • clearly defined and manageable caseloads
  • opportunity to work with Senior Leadership Team and influence change
  • support from an experienced staff team

 

Visits to the school are encouraged.
