I am looking for support staff to work in a special school in Sidcup. This school is for secondary age children with a range of special needs, including PMLD, ASC and SLD. They have opportunities for both short and long term work and can offer a supportive environment in which you can develop your career quickly and successfully.

You must be flexible and willing to work both with small groups and on a 1:1 basis. A willingness to assist with moving and handling is strongly desirable, as is any previous experience of supporting children with physical or mental disabilities including Autism. It would also be beneficial if you are confident in de-escalating confrontational behaviour – training in Team Teach or any other behavioural based training is desirable but not essential.

To work for Teaching Personnel, you will be required to have a child workforce DBS registered to the update service. If you do not already have this in place, you will be required to complete a new DBS application. You must also be able to provide two excellent references from your two most recent employers.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualification and training for this role. For teacher roles, we require a formally recognised teaching qualification. For Support staff our minimum requirement is GCSE English & Maths (A-C) or equivalent.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay.
