What do you need for this SEN Graduate TA role?

You will need to be an empathetic, caring, calm and resilient graduate who has a strong academic record and a degree that closely links to Speech and Language or SEN. Psychology Graduates, Linguistics Graduates and SEN/Inclusion/Education Graduates are particularly sought after for this role. Graduates with a 2:1 or First-Class degree are strongly encouraged to apply.

Previous experience working with children or young adults with Autism or ADHD is desirable. Whilst training will be offered to the successful SEN TA, a solid base of knowledge and experience would be preferable. A genuine passion and desire to work with children in order to improve their educational outcomes is essential for this role.

Graduates who can commence from September and commit to a role that will last for the entire 2019-2020 academic year (until July 2020) will be needed for this role. Continuity is extremely important for SEN pupils so a consistent TA who can build a positive rapport with students is needed for this role.

This is the perfect opportunity for an aspiring SEN professional to really make a difference in the lives of children and young adults with SEN. Working alongside supportive colleagues and some great pupils, you will get the chance to build up some invaluable experience by working within this setting. If this sounds like an exciting opportunity for you to explore, send your application in today to Matt Burgum at Edustaff.

Please note: due to the volume of SEN Graduate applications, only successful SEN Graduate TAs will be contacted.
