Job description

Behaviour Support Assistant - Salford

Do you have experience of working with challenging behaviour?

Teaching Personnel are currently working with one of our client secondary schools in the Salford area, to recruit a Behaviour Support Assistant. This role has an immediate start for the right candidate and will last until the end of the academic year in the first instance.

  • Full time Behaviour Support role with an immediate start
  • Earn between £270 and £325 per week, dependant on qualifications and experience
  • Working within a supportive, inclusive and friendly 'Good' school

Our client school is a smaller than average 11-16 academy located in the Salford Quays area, close to a tram line for prospective candidates who are on public transport. The school moved to their new multi-million pound and modern campus in 2012, and due to an increased number of students currently enrolling, a restructuring and expansion of staff is now taking place. The academy was graded as 'Good' by Ofsted on their most recent inspection, and have appointed a new principal in January as they take the next steps on their journey to become 'Outstanding'.

As a Behaviour Support Assistant, you will be expected to help create an atmosphere for learning for those students who may display challenging behaviour and are potentially at risk of being permanently excluded. Patience, resilience and a calm nature are just a few traits that will be desirable for this role, as well as the ability to build and maintain a strong rapport with a range of different learners. Although experience in this role is not-essential, it would be beneficial. Candidates that have experience in community and youth work may have transferable skills for this role.
