Job description

We are currently working with a Secondary PRU (Pupil Referral Unit) In the Tameside area who are looking for behaviour focused Teaching Assistants to support students in the classroom.

The school supports students at key stage 2 + 3 for a short stay, to assist them in developing their social and emotional skills and fill any gaps in their education with aspirations to return to mainstream education.
Many of the students suffer with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs and some learning disabilities, which in turn has caused challenging behaviour and an inability to cope in a traditional school.


As a Teaching Assistant, you may support one student or a small group, assisting them with the curriculum and encouraging positive social interaction. You are expected to help manage behaviour and mentor the students on how to manage themselves appropriately, whilst having a supportive and caring demeanour so they feel secure and listened to by their support staff.

The hours for this role are Monday to Friday 8.30am-3.30pm.

Please be aware it is essential for all applicants to have a child only enhanced DBS which is registered to the update service, or be willing to apply for one.


Teaching Personnel are the leading national agency for education recruitment and work with a number of exclusive schools which are available to our staff only.
Our specialist consultants work hard to understand your work needs and find you the bets opportunities.

We can offer an unrivalled CPD academy with many opportunities for progression, all at an 80% reduced rate, as well as a competitive hourly rate.
