Job description

Sports Support job in Plymouth school, SEN

  • SEN, MLD school in Plymouth
  • 1:1 role
  • Competitive pay

My client, a school in Plymouth, are recruiting for a Teaching Assistant to start as soon as possible. The job is to work with a male pupil with challenging behaviour so I am looking for a role model (male or female) who can play sport with the pupil, take him out on engaging trips, and make learning fun for him. If you are a sporty, fun person who wants to work in a very happy school then this is the job for you!

The school is for children aged 11-19 with challenging behaviour and moderate learning difficulties. It is a busy, happy school that my staff always ask to return to. I cannot emphasise enough what a great school this is to work at!

The ideal TA will have experience of working with SEN pupils but this is not absolutely necessary - it's most important to be a people person who can quickly build relationships with children and staff.
