Behaviour Teaching Assistant

Job description

Are you looking to get into the education sector? Here at Teaching Personnel, we are looking for a confident and personable individual to work as a teaching assistant with pupils who have challenging behaviour.

We are looking for a passionate, dedicated and hard working teaching assistant to join our ever growing team of educators here at Teaching Personnel.

Ideally you will have a background working with challenging behaviour, as a lot of the pupils in these schools display challenging behaviour traits. You will need to have strong relationship building skills, confidence and the necessary dedication to this role.

Even though the role is a challenging one, the fact that the class sizes are smaller gives you a real chance to make a difference to these children's lives and education.

We are looking for the following skills;

  • Confidence
  • Being flexible and adaptable to work short and long term positions
  • Hold an excellent track record
  • Be able to use strong interpersonal skills
  • Patience
  • Have the ability to learn and adapt to your work role

The correct candidate will be strong minded and have high interpersonal skills. With the ability to remain professional yet build friendly relationships and make a positive difference. We don't necessarily require you to have a working background in the SEN/Challenging behaviour sector as this can be taught.

If you have any queries or are interested in applying to this role; please do not hesitate to contact Rebecca, our SEN specialist.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
