Behaviour Support Assistant

Job description

We are currently recruiting for Mindfulness mentors to work in schools in the West Sussex area on a long term and casual basis. This is in response to the growing demand for support due to the covid-19 outbreak and the need for specialist intervention and support for young people facing challenges adapting back into the school environment. The schools range from alternative provisions, to specialist schools catering for children with a variety of needs ranging from PMLD, SEMH to Behavioural Needs. You will be expected to work with a variety of ability and age levels.
