Job description

Psychology Graduate - Behaviour Support


Specialist Teaching Assistants in schools perform a vital function of bridging the gap between what teachers are teaching and what students are learning. This is challenging enough in a mainstream primary school, but if students have any additional learning needs, then learning support workers need to be skilled and able spin the plates of pushing students to maximise progress, supporting them pastorally, catering to their additional needs, managing their behaviour, and building rapport to gain their trust.

Ideal Qualities:

  • Psychology Graduates
  • Sports Graduates
  • Outdoor Learning Instructors
  • Residential Support Workers
  • Mental Health Support workers

Teaching Personnel's Specialist SEN branch are working with an number of SEN schools and Pupil Referral Units that caters specifically for students between 3-19 who have been diagnosed with a wide range of SEN including Profound & Multiple Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, and Social, Emotional, Mental Health. Some of which may have a Statement of SEN which is a legal document to ensure appropriate support is given.

The schools I work with are looking for Specialist Teaching Assistants to support their students with accessing education from as soon as possible, with the possibility of an on-going role as soon as possible if the fit is right. Most of the teaching is done on a 1:1 basis, so that students' individual needs can be catered for, unlike in a mainstream school where they can be lost in the noise of 30 others.

If this sounds like the job for you then please get in touch with your Specialist SEN Branch here at Teaching Personnel at your earliest convenience. Please click on the "apply now" button.
