Join our team and make a difference!
If you have an interest in making a difference in the lives of children on the Autism Spectrum, we have an opportunity of a lifetime for you. We are looking for a passionate, innovative, and engaging educator to work collaboratively amongst a fantastic team of dedicated professionals who are focused on applying positive behaviour supports to facilitate student growth and development.
Every day at Woodbury is different and your role will offer a varied and interesting caseload. With small class sizes and high teacher to student ratio, we are focused on making real differences to every student’s learning, adequately preparing them for transition into a less supported setting.

The right applicant will be willing to learn and seamlessly fit into an already established collaborative environment with the benefit of onsite specialist support in the area of behaviour intervention.
This position would be a good fit for individuals seeking to further their teaching skills specifically in the area of Autism support.
