Behaviour Support Assistant

Job description

A school in Stockport is seeking a Behaviour Support Assistant to join the support staff team.

Applications are welcomed from:

  • Graduates.
  • Individuals who have worked within an SEN capacity previously.
  • Individuals looking for a new and exciting role supporting children between the ages of 11-18.

As a Behaviour Support Assistant, the role will involve working with students across a wide range of ages and abilities. This position will link directly to working with students with SEN, as well as students who struggle/refuse to engage with work set. Many of these students will be needing to refocus after a lengthy break over Christmas. The required applicant will be able to implement strategies that motivate students to engage with work set, as well as providing consistent pastoral support at all times.

You will be working with other support staff in looking to improve students engagement and progress, as well as identifying students who are going to need further support as the academic year goes on. The role will involve offering specific feedback on individuals, and will also require communication with teaching staff in order to develop certain areas where improvement is required.

Pay: Between GBP275 and GBP350 per week based on previous experience.

This is a rewarding role, and will require an individual who is able to display the required resilience needed to enhance student development. There is no doubt that this is a challenging position, and being able to successfully form strong relationships with students is imperative.

The role will commence after the February Half Term, and will run until the end of the academic year within the first instance.
