My client school in Chorley are seeking a TA with experience in supporting children with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties. The role will be based in the school's FE Department. Although the pupils are learning at a primary level, you must be confident supporting pupils aged 16-19.

The school caters for boys and girls with a range of SEN including Severe Learning Difficulties or Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties. A minority have extreme communication problems including Autism Spectrum Conditions and associated, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and speech and language needs.

The school are specifically looking for someone bright, engaging and proactive with a warming personality who can adapt quickly to the needs of their pupils and can fit in well with the staff in their department. You must be proactive and enthusiastic with a can-do attitude.

You MUST be willing to assist with personal care.
