Do you have the relevant skills to support a young child with a Health and Care Plan targeting his Behaviour? Then this may be the role for you.

A school on the outskirts of Burnley have informed Teaching Personnel to say they would like us to supply a temporary behaviour support assistant to start after the May holidays and continue for the foreseeable future in school, providing the child stays in a mainstream setting.

The Head teacher and SENCO are keen to secure a positive role model and someone who can build a strong working relationship with the child in question. The Head teacher has commented that she would like a strong character who understands the boundaries between being a friend and being a person of authority, whilst working with the child.

The child in question has ADHD and as a result of this can quickly escalate and disrupt other children in the class. It is essential that the applying candidates have a good knowledge of children with ADHD and can use a variety of strategies to manage the behaviour of the child. It is preferable that you have TEAM TEACH but is not essential.
