Are you looking for a career inspiring challenging young people?

A school in Darwen, East Lancashire are seeking Support Assistants who come from a military background to work with very challenging pupils. The School is smaller than average and pupils in school have Social, Emotional, Mental Health and Behavioural Difficulties which can sometimes result in physically and verbally aggressive behaviours.

From previous experience, we have found that those who come from a military background have worked well in Pupil Referral Units to enhance the lives of students of a challenging nature, by instilling discipline in a positive and professional manner, whilst acting as a positive role model. Sometimes pupils with SEMH can lack structure, routine and guidance and we have found that those from an Army or military background earn the respect of others quickly using their strong presence, intellect and character to turn the lives of the students around.

The role is a full time, long-term opportunity and could result in a permanent position!

If this role sounds ideal for you then please do not hesitate to contact Kirsten on 01772 842155 or email 

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.
