The head of a client PRU is looking for an experienced TA with experience working with behaviour. The school caters for pupils aged 5-16 years who have SEMH / SEN.

The head wishes to recruit full time Behaviour Mentors to work within our secondary phase (ages 11-16 years).

The pupils have been referred from mainstream schools due to various needs including behavioural, low numeracy, literacy and SEMH.
