Do you have experience supporting children or young adults from challenging backgrounds?
Have you got a track record of assisting in or leading sports sessions?
Tradewind are recruiting for a Sports Assistant / Behaviour Support for a Secondary SEMH School in the Bolton area starting in January on a full time and long term basis.
This is a Sports Assistant / Behaviour Support role starting 1st November on a full time and long term basis. You will be required to support in PE activities in partnership with the PE teacher and other vocational subjects such as food, construction and mechanics. The role will also require elements of learning and academic support within the classroom environment from time to time.
The school is located just outside Bolton centre and caters for young people at secondary age outside of mainstream education. Class sizes are typically 6-8 pupils split between KS3 and KS4. The provision has an excellent reputation in the borough and works closely with secondary schools & youth centres as well as many other outside agencies involved in young people's care and education.
Children are aged between 11 and 16 years and all come with an Education Healthcare Plan (EHCP) for Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties (SEMH). This means that pupils occasionally display verbal or physical challenging behaviour. You will need to be resilient, dedicated and passionate about supporting young people from vulnerable backgrounds. You will need a natural ability to connect with young people with varied ethnicities, cultures, language and ability. This is a great opportunity for someone to work in the education sector with young people while making full use of your vocational skills in sports.
