Are you an inspiring Teaching Assistant who enjoys the challenge of working with students with SEN and/or behavioural difficulties and SEMH/EBD? Do you get great satisfaction from being able to make a difference to the education of these students? We are working with an SEN Academy chain school catering mainly for SEMH/ASD, who have schools all across London, who requires Teaching Assistant to work on 1-2-1 basis with students who follow their own individual programme. We are looking for candidates who are committed to the education of special needs pupils. You should demonstrate strong classroom management skills and a willingness to adapt in line with the varying needs of students. The spectrum of SEMH is wide and ranges from straightforward 'naughtiness' through to quite complex psychiatric disorders and students can be withdrawn, disruptive, hyperactive, lacking concentration and presenting challenging behaviour. Most children with SEMH, owing to an emotional difficulty or disturbance, refuse or cannotmake full use of the educational opportunities offered to them and are consequently difficult or challenging to manage. In addition to this the majority of these children have parallel difficulties within their families and communities. Looked After Children, namely those involved with or under the care of Social Services are a major group in any specialist provision for SEMH pupils. Successful candidates will demonstrate the following: -Proven experience of working in an educational or care setting -The ability and desire to work positively and effectively with students with challenging behaviours -Strong classroom and behaviour management skills -The ability to motivate students and work collaboratively as part of a team If you are passionate about making a difference and experienced in working with students with a variety of Special Educational Needs, please submit your CV to Richard at LTF Recruitment now
