Job description

Have you Graduated in or are studying Psychology?

Looking for paid work experience?

Teaching Personnel work with a number of Behaviour Provision Schools across Liverpool and the Wirral area, we are looking to recruit those with knowledge of psychology to work alongside students with mental health needs and anti-social behaviours as Teaching Assistants.

Although the role is based around education support, due to the student’s personal needs and behaviours they require consistent mentoring, motivating and advising, as well as some counselling, so their well-being can remain stable meaning they can achieve much more in their education and work towards a more independent future.
Behaviours displayed by the students can be challenging so applicants must be prepared to practice de-escalation and calming techniques, as well as maintaining an empathetic approach and understanding the behaviour stems from other problems. Teaching Personnel are able to provide training opportunities in Child Psychology, Mental Health and Team-Teach for those looking to excel in the school based environment.

As a Teaching Assistant you must be caring, non-judgemental and supportive; building rapport is a priceless experience for these students who may suffer with low self-esteem, behavioural difficulties and disrupted family lives, and rely on their school network to provide safety and security for them. 

Working hours are from Monday to Friday 8.30am-3.30pm approx, and is available on a supply and temporary basis with permanent and long term opportunities regularly available due to student intake and staffing needs.

If this role sounds like an opportunity that is perfect, please send over your up to date CV.
