  • Looking a challenge?

Teaching Personnel works with several schools in the Carmarthenshire area, many of which are PRU’s. Many of these PRU’s work on a behaviour support scheme which introduces a teaching assistant to a class to particularly focus on improving behaviour with certain groups of pupils. Sometimes this requires working one-to-one or with a small group of pupils, as well as working to generally support the class.

A school in Carmarthenshire are currently looking for teaching assistants for behaviour support, one position specifically for a candidate that has a sporty background as well as the desire to support pupils on a one-to-one and general teaching assistant duties. The right applicant would have experience dealing with pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health challenges that lead to challenging behaviour, and ideally be Team Teach trained. You would not be phased by high tariff behaviour and be confident de-escalating behaviour and at times using restraining techniques. Experience working as a one-to-one teaching assistant would be beneficial, as well as experience as a general teaching assistant.

Team Teach training would be advantageous, however if you do not have this training Teaching Personnel run courses during the holidays which you can enrol on to gain this qualification. Ideal applicants would have their own transport and be happy travelling around Carmarthenshire if necessary.
