SEMH Teaching Assistant

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

This vacancy is open to Students, Graduates, Healthcare Workers, Support Workers, Counsellors, Youth Workers, Teaching Assistants, Learning Support Assistants, and those with personal experience of managing Autism, Mental Health and Challenging Behaviour.

Location: Ely, Cambridgeshire/North Cambridge

Pay: GBP10 per hour

Start Date: ASAP

Together with our partner school and specialist education provider, we are seeking keen and motivated individuals, who are willing to get ‘stuck in’ from the first day of work. If you are looking to begin or develop your career within the education sector, this could be the school for you!

You will work with pupils, who have SEMH and/or autism, which means you will need to manage very challenging and disruptive behaviours on a regular, day to day basis. Class sizes are much smaller than a mainstream school and ratios of support staff to pupils are high – due to the needs and requirements outlined on each pupil’s EHCP and learning plans. No two days will be the same at work; one day you could be working 1:1 and the next in a class of 5-8 pupils with different needs and abilities.

If you are looking for a new challenge, more of a work/life balance or just a total change from long healthcare shifts – get in touch with Sophia today, to start our registration process and discuss your work preferences!

In addition to excellent support throughout the vetting process and your work placements, Teaching Personnel can offer you a wide range of CPD courses in SEN, to support you in your career. Courses include Teaching Assistant Diplomas, Child Psychology and Understanding Autism.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We offer all our registered candidates FREE child protection and prevent duty training. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
