Behaviour support for mainstream secondary school students

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

  • Have recent experience supporting students with challenging behaviour
  • Have behaviour management experience
  • Ideally be a sports coach or youth worker
  • Have a Team-Teach or MAPA qualification
