Job description

  • Do you want to make a difference to the lives of young people?
  • Do you have experience working with young people in a school setting?

A behavioural school in Wigan requires experienced teaching assistants who are available for day to day work as well as long term work. This school caters for young people who are unable to access mainstream education and mainstream classroom due to their social and emotional needs.

The young people at this school can display challenging behaviours that are shown through verbal and sometimes physical aggression. Experience working with young people who display challenging behaviours is desirable and will benefit when working with the young people within the school.

The teaching assistants may be supporting within class or, if more suited, with the outreach team supporting young people with their social and emotional development in the community. TAs are required in school due to the increase in pupil numbers at the start of the spring term.

It would be desirable for the teaching assistant to have previous experience supporting young people academically who are not engaged with their education. It would also be desirable for the teaching assistant to have relevant verbal and physical de-escalation training such as Team-Teach. Teaching Personnel are able to provide relevant training if needed.
