I am currently working with a 'Good' SEN school that caters for secondary aged students with SLD in Bromley who are looking for a Teacher Assistant to start in January on a full time basis until the end of the academic year. SLD Teacher Assistants work with 1 or 2 pupils on a daily basis providing individual assistance to ensure access to learning across the curriculum. As a SLD Teacher Assistant you will complete 1:1 support for students including assisting in personal care tasks (feeding, changing, toileting etc.). This SLD Teacher Assistant role would suit both experienced TAs from SEN schools or mainstream primary schools - experience supporting learners would be advantageous though not a necessity. The school aims to provide each student who passes through their doors to have a personalised education to suit their needs so that they can reach their full potential, therefore 1:1 support will be an integral part of any teacher assistants role within school.

We are looking for a secondary SLD Teacher Assistant who:

  • Has at least 1 years UK experience in a school setting - either mainstream or SEN
  • Has experience supporting SLD students 1:1 or in small groups
  • Has the ability to work as part of a team, is keen to learn and work on own initiatives
  • Experience using PECs and Makaton (preferable but not essential)
  • Manual Handling training (desirable and can be offered at a later date)

Each class has up to 6 children with 1 class teacher and at least 2 Teaching assistants which ensures student have a huge amount of support across all areas of their learning and development. There are 2 sites which boast a huge amount of excellent facilities including a hydro therapy pool, specialist hoisting equipment, sensory rooms and safe spaces.

If this sounds like the ideal role for you then send through your CV to be considered!
