Teaching Assistant SEMH, Skelmersdale - September start
Are you looking for a new challenge?
Are you passionate about working with young people, particularly those who have become disengaged from education or may struggle socially and emotionally?
Our client school in Skelmersdale are seeking a Teaching Assistant to support the needs of their students with Autism, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, ADHD and associated learning / behavioural difficulties, in a primary setting.
We are looking for a hardworking, resilient and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant, who has a desire to work with children who have severe challenging behaviour. Working with these young people can often be very challenging and won't be a 'walk in the park,' but you know that, and you have the emotional resilience to manage their behaviour, that's why you're still reading this, because you know you can make a real difference to pupils who would really benefit from your support… and you love a challenge! You will be upbeat, approachable and creative, with the ability to build rapport quickly in order to engage the young people in the classroom.
The school will consider candidates with varying experience including sports coaching, youth work, Alternative provisons, PRU's, SEN Schools etc but you must be confident in working alongside young people who can express challenging behaviours.
You must have good literacy and numeracy skills and excellent communication skills as the school pride themselves on an exciting and stimulating curriculum that engages all children and allows them to meet the individual needs of each and every child. This is a caring school where each child is valued as an individual and their achievements, big or small, are recognised and celebrated. All staff work hard to provide the best for the children, their families and the community.
Working hours will be 8:30 - 3:30pm, 5 days per week and your role will be on a temp-perm basis, meaning that following a probationary period, provided you work hard and make a positive impact on the class, you will become a permanent member of staff! The closing date will be at 12 noon on Tuesday 4th June but please send your CV sooner rather than later as the Deputy is happy to meet with any potential candidates ASAP, therefore you could be the front runner!

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay.
