Job description

Teaching Assistants with experience in Social, Emotional, Mental Health & Behavioural Difficulties required ASAP!

  • Opportunity to positively change the lives of young people
  • Opportunity to support young people on a 1:1 and small group basis
  • Opportunity to secure long-term / permanent work

Teaching Personnel have a high demand for Teaching Assistants to offer 1:1 support for pupils from EYFS - KS4 with severe Emotional, Social, Mental Health and Behavioural Difficulties, those with Anxiety, Depression and Eating Disorders. Some students are from a disadvantaged background and may struggle academically whereas others may be verbally and physically aggressive towards other students and Teachers.

We deal with a range of schools across Lancashire, who cater for students who have been excluded or are in the process of being excluded and require additional support in a specialist unit, provision or school.

You must have experience supporting students who can display very challenging behaviour, however, this does not have to be in a school-based environment. Teaching Personnel also recruit candidates who have undertaken youth work, supported young offenders or those at risk of re-offending and those who have worked in secure or medical units. You must have the ability to build a rapport with a non-judgemental attitude and be passionate about improving the lives of young people.

The ideal candidate will be willing to work on a supply basis initially whilst we seek a longer term opportunity for you. Longer term opportunities usually arise quickly for those candidates who show initiative, are proactive and receive positive feedback from their supply assignments.

If interested please send a copy of your CV to keeley.watson@teachingpersonnel.com or call 01772 842155.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates applying to jobs through Teaching Personnel must undertake or have undertaken an Enhanced Disclosure via the DBS – Full assistance provided (AGY).
