DAS STAFF 2019

 

WHY JOIN DAS?

Potential for organisational growth

While DAS provides support for over 3,500 students, it is estimated that there are 23,000 students from preschool to secondary school with dyslexia severe enough to warrant intervention. DAS is therefore at the tip of the iceberg in terms of our potential client base. Additionally, there is tremendous potential for growth in the region as well as support for clients who have associated specific learning differences.

Potential for individual growth

DAS has grown in size by five times in the last seven years. In a rapidly growing organisation, opportunities abound for staff who are willing to take on challenges and responsibilities.

Emphasis on professional development

While a not for profit organisation, DAS is first and foremost a professional organisation delivering professional services to our clients. Our emphasis in therefore on the continued professional development of ALL staff. Selected staff will also have opportunities for higher education scholarships as well as to pioneer research.  A comprehensive training pathway is offered to our professional staff and further qualifications are available for those staff who wish to continue to develop in the field of special needs.

Staff who are on sessional employment will receive the same training as full-time staff.
