Full Time

A North Manchester Primary School currently is looking for an SEN Teaching Assistant to work full time supporting a child on a 1:1 basis with additional needs.

This school is one of the fastest improving schools in Manchester. The school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities to enhance the children's development. The school attaches great importance to pastoral care and the development of a caring environment within the school is something which is fundamental to the school. All staff take an active role in the pastoral care of the children.

You will need to have a strong commitment to pupils' learning as well as caring and supportive qualities. Children's achievements are very important and the staff all work with great enthusiasm to make sure that each child achieves the very best they can.

This post will involve supporting a child with ASD and communication difficulties in a mainstream classroom so knowledge of ASD would be an advantage but no essential. It will involve individual and group work under the direction of a class teacher in and out of the classroom to best support the child. The applicant will also be required to liaise with outside agencies, for example the Sensory Support Service.

Empowering Learning is a teacher training and placement consultancy who specialise in the training and placement of both overseas and UK trained teachers. We have ex Ofsted Inspectors, QTS Specialists and ex Leadership Teachers working in the office to support all our staff throughout their journey.

We are also in partnership with Sunderland University who provide support and guidance before granting successful trainees with QTS. In addition to the above we also supply day to day, short term and long-term cover as well as permanent staffing.

Empowering Learning Ltd is a committed Equal Opportunities Employer and therefore will not discriminate on the grounds of age, gender, race, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation. Please note that successful applicants will be asked to apply for an enhanced DBS check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
