SEN teaching assistant - Birmingham - September 2019

A number of special schools in the Birmingham area are seeking enthusiastic SEN teaching assistants to start either full-time or part-time in September 2019.

The school, which specialises in helping students aged 9-19 who have learning difficulties, speech and communication difficulties, sensory impairments and autism, has recently been awarded a 'good' report from Ofsted and takes pride in providing an inclusive educational community.

  • Assisting the leading teacher with the whole class - including behaviour management
  • Liaising ahead of time with tutors about upcoming lessons and what will be required of them.
  • Safeguarding young people.
