Job description

Our SEN Team are looking to recruit a Behaviour Support Assistant with experience in engaging disaffected children with low self-esteem who may suffer with some anxiety and/or anger management challenges.

The successful applicant will be based in a secondary provision in the Middleton area of Leeds who provide bespoke programmes, and focus on providing an additional layer of supportive behaviour management. You will work together with teachers and senior leaders to create a positive learning environment where students are encouraged to engage and thrive.
