With outstanding communication skills and strong leadership within the classroom, suitable applicants will create an environment in which students with ASD can thrive within the existing mainstream secondary school setting. Applicants will be able to demonstrate how their current knowledge of autism and their experience to date demonstrates their capacity to successfully apply these principles in the Specialist Learning Program.

- Efficiently deploy resources and manage a team of education assistants to ensure program fidelity
- Demonstrate high level interpersonal skills to effectively communicate with colleagues, parents, students and the school community
