SEN Learning Support Assistant job - Full time, long term within a School in Penarth

I am currently working in partnership with a special school based in Penarth. The school caters for pupils aged 7 - 19 who have emotional, behavioural and social difficulties.

The school focuses on establishing emotional well being, positive relationships and developing social skills. They aim to develop students into effective learners in order for them to cope better with things that they find particularly challenging.

The School are looking for an enthusiastic and resilient Teaching Assistant to support and enhance pupil learning and development. They are looking for someone with a dynamic personality who will be able to create rapport with the pupils and are able to adapt to any situation.

Both roles are full time and long term and will be beginning in September. There is also potential for the roles to become permanent in 2018.

You will be working closely with the class teacher and will be responsible for ensuring that pupils feel supported and encouraged. The school have a fantastic team who will encourage you in your own personal development and career growth. If you are committed to the role, there will also be opportunities for extra training through the school.

You will need:
- Experience of working with children in an educational setting. You do not need to have experience of working within an SEN setting but you must have an interest of working with SEN individuals.
- Excellent interpersonal and communication skills - this will be important for building rapport with pupils, as well as staff members and parents
