Teaching Assistant - About the candidate:

I am seeking to appoint an outstanding SEN Teaching Assistant for long-term jobs at an outstanding SEN primary school. You will work with students who have complex learning difficulties and benefit from smaller classes, a personalised curriculum and additional support. These children are working at lower levels than their peers and need support in developing their communication skills. The students need to be coaxed into interacting with the outside world and as a TA you will need to set clear boundaries, provide lots of positive reinforcement, be patience and understanding. The work can be challenging as pupils do struggle to express themselves and this can result in frustrations - students can lash out from time to time and some students pinch or scratch when agitated.

Teaching Assistant - Additional Benefits:

  • Great pay rates
  • Free Specialist Accredited Training
  • Friendly Management Team
  • Excellent Transport Links

Teaching Assistant - Skills and experience:

  • Recent UK TA experience
  • NVQ L2/3 Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools
  • GCSE Maths & English grades A-C
  • Experience supporting learners with autism and complex learning difficulties
  • Good BM Skills
