SupplyWell is recruiting!

Are you looking for a new opportunity on a temporary basis in June?

Do you want a new role that is varied, rewarding and will give you new skills?

SupplyWell is recruiting for a SEN Teaching Assistant to start in May on a full time and long term temporary basis in St Helens paying up to £80 a day.

This SEN Teaching Assistant role is for a caring and nurturing person who is passionate about helping those with SEN. It is based at an Ofsted Outstanding Special Needs Primary School in St Helens The school caters for up to 150 young people aged 3-11 with SEN including Autism, Sensory Needs, Speech & Language Needs and Physical Disabilities. They have state of the art facilities designed with their individual pupils' needs in mind which includes a hydrotherapy pool, sensory rooms, forest school space and interactive areas. Staff love working there, parents are extremely complimentary and it is generally a fantastic place to work!

The children have a wide range of Special Educational Needs and as such most require their SEN Teaching Assistant to be experienced in supporting those with Autism as a minimum. Pupils all have EHCPs and IEPs which need to be followed and updated over time in conjunction with other school staff and outside agencies. While the role has a large care element you will also need to provide learning support and follow the teachers instruction. You will need to work in conjunction with the teacher to use strategies to support each individual with their academic progress. You will need to be empathetic, patient and resilient to challenging situations and unexpected events. Progress is measured in smaller steps than in mainstream but these smaller steps can be mountains for some of their young people and the school is seeing progress in each pupil and wants them to reach their full potential.

This is an amazing opportunity that doesn't come around often to work in an incredible school with exceptional colleagues around you to support you and help you learn.
