Job description

Behaviour Support Worker

  • Behaviour Support role within a Mainstream Secondary School
  • Full time, term time only
  • Daily pay rates of up to £75 (depending on experience)

A large, diverse Secondary Academy situated close to Leeds City centre are looking to appoint a full time Behaviour Support Worker from January 2017.

The role will involve working closely with challenging and often vulnerable pupils to re-integrate them into mainstream lessons and ensure they are succeeding academically.You will be liaising with class teachers, parents/guardians and in some cases social workers and Seccos so you must have excellent communication skills as well as the ability to deescalate challenging situations.

The role is fast-paced, and you will face different challenges on a daily basis due to the nature of the students you will be working with. You must be able to work with young people with challenging behaviour and the ability to manage and deescalate this. Previous experience of working in a behaviour support role with Secondary-aged pupils is desirable but not essential, other related experience may include Youth Work, Social Work, Sports Leaders, Ex-Military etc. As you will also be supporting within lessons you must have at least grade GCSE Maths and English (or equivalent).

The school is located close to central Leeds, on a regular bus route from most areas of Leeds, and just a 15 minute bus journey from central Leeds (if you are traveling in to the city by train etc.) so is accessible to most areas of West Yorkshire. The school is larger than average and serves a diverse cohort of students.

Being Team Teach trained will be an advantage in this role, but if you have not received this training or it is out-dated, Teaching Personnel offer regular CPD courses including Team Teach which you will be encouraged to attend.

This particular role is full time, however if you are seeking part-time/flexible work we do have a number of similar positions available on a supply basis.
