Job description

Behaviour Support Officer

Pay: £60-£65 per day


Long Term Opportunity

Teaching Personnel work closely with a Pupil Referral and Secure Units across South Wales and have been approached to find an experienced teacher to fill the vacancy. You would need to be able to differentiate your work on a daily basis to help engage the pupils in the work and you may be needed in a variety of different classes.

The school caters for students who have been excluded or are in the process of being excluded and require additional support.

The Ideal Candidate:

  • Experience in foster care, youth work, young offending, psychology, ex-military or sports backgrounds.
  • Keen interest in supporting challenging behaviour
  • Looking for a long term, full time opportunity.

You must have experience young people who can display very challenging behaviour however; this does not have to be in a school-based environment. Teaching Personnel also recruit candidates who have undertaken youth work, supported young offenders or those at risk of re-offending and those who have worked in secure or medical units. You must have the ability to build a rapport with a non-judgemental attitude and be passionate about improving the lives of young people.

The classes are smaller than mainstream and you'll have the support of several TA's so you will have a really strong opportunity to positively change a child's life.

The ideal candidate will be willing to work on a supply basis initially whilst we seek a longer term opportunity for you. The school are known to appoint candidates on a longer term basis. However, longer term opportunities usually arise quickly for those candidates who show initiative, are proactive and receive positive feedback from their supply assignments
