Are you a Teaching Assistant seeking work in an SEN School?

If so, Teaching Personnel are working closely with an SEN School in the Burnley area who require general SEN support. The School is smaller than average and caters for pupils with PMLD, Downs Syndrome, Autism, ADHD and Physical Disabilities. The School is located close to Burnley and most of the pupils in this school are supported on a 1:1 basis, therefore the School require a lot of additional staff.

The role is likely to become full time, however, it is going to start on an Ad-hoc supply basis and the candidate must be available to do a volunteer day in the School to showcase your suitability. The role will require the support of pupils with special educational needs and you may be expected to provide personal care for some pupils.

The candidate must be hard working, have experience supporting pupils with SEN - not necessarily within a School - and the candidate must be flexible, adaptable and have an understanding of various special needs.

The successful candidate will benefit from

* negotiable rates of pay based on experience £49-59 per day

* long term position available

* rewarding job supporting pupils with SEN
