I am recruiting on behalf of an outstanding SEN primary school near Beckenham.

  • Experience of working with children, ideally those with SEN
  • Knowledge of PECs or Makaton
  • A DBS on the update service, or be willing to complete a new one asap
  • Excellent references from two previous employers
  • Full time availability
  • Strong numeracy, literacy and ICT skills

Once registered with us, Teaching Personnel can offer you access to CPD courses that are either free or at a reduced cost. We can also offer a referral bonus of £50 if you recommend another teaching assistant, who then successfully registers and works for us.
