Become an ABA Tutor

Open minded, energetic and creative individuals needed to join our home and school-based teaching teams for children and young people with autism.

 The position of ABA tutor provides an excellent opportunity for undergraduate or graduate students to gain experience of psychology in an applied setting, working either full time (5 days/week) or part time (2.5 days per week), and is also a great career choice (please visit our Training and Careers page). Our programmes for children involve teaching a wide range of functional skills using discrete trial and natural environment teaching, managing and reducing problem behaviour, data collection and analysis, and plenty of creative and sensory play.

Would you love an opportunity to learn new skills, put theory into practice, and earn some money, while making a real difference to our wonderful children, young people, and their families?

You should be physically fit, energetic, enthusiastic, creative, have a sense of fun, and be willing to learn. Full training will be provided but childcare experience is advantageous. You will need to be located within the West Midlands, or London area.
