Full Time
My client based in the heart of the vibrant borough of Lewisham is currently seeking an experienced SEN TA with sign and language, PECS and Makaton experience. The school is a lovely 2 form entry school rated "GOOD" by OFSTED and offers amazing support to all its staff. You will mainly be working with Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils who have significant delay in their academic, communication and social abilities. You will be working in a class of 8 pupils alongside another experienced SEN TA, a HLTA and a specialist ASD Teacher. The children can be "active" so you will need to be able to concentrate, multitask and bring energy and enthusiasm to the job. The ideal candidate will have good ASD knowledge and some experience of PECS and Makaton but the key to the job is attitude and the school are very willing to train someone who shows passion and a willingness to get stuck in! Please note that personal care (feeding and changing) is a part of the job and applicants who wouldn't be prepared to undertake these tasks after training will not be considered for the post. If you are keen on this post, please don't hesitate to send me your updated CV. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards Keith
