Calling SpLD Assessors

This is a new and exciting opportunity for SpLD assessors with a current APC looking to extend and enhance their skills and experience. We are looking for candidates who are interested in full-time or part-time or associate work.

Come and join a team where there are psychologists and SpLD assessors working together in partnership (how lovely is that!). This is a new collaboration between Lexxic (http://www.lexxic.com) and Dyslexia Assessment & Consultancy (http://www.workingwithdyslexia.com).

We are two leading organisations with a track record in the field of neurodiversity in the workplace and higher education. We are committed to providing quality support to all students and employees with a neurodiverse profile.

You should hold a current APC and have experience of providing diagnostic assessments in Higher Education for dyslexia, DCD / Dyspraxia and possibly dyscalculia and ADHD (support and training provided). There are plenty of openings for those wishing to gain experience in the workplace – and again, plenty of guidance.

Ideally, you will have the following:

  • A current Assessment Practising Certificate, preferably with at least one renewal
  • Experience in conducting diagnostic assessments in Higher Education, following SASC guidance. 
  • An advantage would be to have knowledge of JCQ regulations for examination access arrangements
  • Experience and a passion for supporting individuals who are neurodiverse
  • An understanding of how to support and improve the skills of neurodiverse individuals
  • A keen desire to extend knowledge and experience
  • Excellent ‘people’ skills; qualities of empathy and patience
  • Excellent attention to detail and proofreading skills

How to apply: Please send a work resume/CV and a one-page cover letter explaining why you are interested in this opportunity to jobs@lexxic.com

Please address your application to Cise Kilic, Head of Psychological Services at Lexxic and Katherine Kindersley, Founder of Dyslexia Assessment & Consultancy.

End date: ongoing opportunity but assessors needed asap
