Would paid experience in a Primary school as an SEN Teaching Assistant be of interest to you?

Psychology Graduate SEN Teaching Assistant
This primary school is a successful mainstream setting with a proven track record of supporting young learners with additional needs to achieve their fullest potential. It has a friendly and effective Special Needs department with an exceptional SENCO who really values talented graduates in her team and is looking for an ambitious Teaching Assistant to join her for the next academic year.

As an SEN Teaching Assistant, you will work closely with the SENCO to support a little boy in Year 2 with Autism. He needs support with his communication and can display challenging behaviour. You will ensure the best possible education and ensure the pupils receive the support needed. You will be required to be an excellent motivator to inspire the pupils learning and be committed to their success. This is the perfect opportunity for a graduate to earn up to £300 per week whilst building further experience prior to further study or teacher training.

Some foundation training will be given to help you adjust to your new role, so don't worry if you haven't worked in a school before. However, on the other hand, if you are a Psychology graduate with relevant volunteer experience then this will really support your application. The most important thing is that you are passionate about supporting children with significant learning barriers as a SEN Teaching Assistant.

Don't miss this perfect opportunity for an ambitious individual to really make a difference as a Primary SEN Teaching Assistant. If you are Psychology graduate with SEN experience, you may be able to join this lovely school in Bradford - send your CV to Amy at i-teachers right away!
