Classroom Assistant for SEN

Are you looking for a new direction in your career?

  • Do you thrive of spending more time working with children who need it most?
  • Do you enjoy making a real difference to children who struggle with their learning?
  • Are you interested in exploring a new, exciting way of Teaching?

Teaching Personnel are currently looking for mainstream teaching assistants who are looking for a change of direction in their career and become apart of a SEN School. In a specialist setting you will have small class sizes allowing you to focus your attention on each individual student and support 1:1 with each student in the class allowing you to make a real difference.

In an SEN school you will not only be supported by the senior leadership team but also specialist within the school such as therapy, nursing and multi-sensory teams.

As a Teaching Assistant, you'll typically need to:

  • Follow instructions from Teachers in order to support effectively in the class room
  • Adhere to professional practice standards and legislation, including confidentiality, safeguarding, equality, diversity and inclusion policies
  • Ensure you're up-to-date on your knowledge of local service provision for appropriate signposting and referrals
  • Support students on 1:1, adapting your approach on a case by case basis in order to engage students effectively
  • Help children with learning and development
  • Coach, mentor and motivate children to understand the benefits of relevant activities
  • Maintain accurate and up-to-date administration and caseload records, including reports of all interactions

Minimal Requirements:

  • A child workforce DBS on the update service, or one completed through Teaching Personnel
  • Be approachable and encourage to develop relationships with other staff members and the pupils
  • Previous experience with the SEN students is preferred, but we will consider newly qualified teachers for this role
  • Be able to provide 2 references covering 6 years

If you are excited about the prospect of using your skills to make a real difference to the children who need it most but are unsure of how to take the next step, we are here to help. If you have any questions or would like any information on Teaching in an SEN setting please feel free to call me for a confidential chat, we are available out of school hours.
