SEN Support - Harrogate

Job description

Teaching Personnel are currently working with a Specialist School in Knaresborough who are seeking to appoint an experienced SEN Teaching Assistant to support pupils with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD).

The school is situated within walking distance of a local train station, has good public transport links and is easily accessible by car from the surrounding areas of Harrogate, Leeds and York.

You will have experience supporting pupils with complex needs and have the ability to implement a differentiated curriculum - designed to meet the social and emotional needs of learners with complex physical and medical needs. You will have excellent communication skills in order to liaise with a multi-disciplinary team, including occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, medical staff and parents. Pupils may also use alternative communication methods such as PECS or inclusive technology and communication aids, so experience in supporting pupils with speech, language and communication needs is desirable. It is also highly desirable that you possess moving and handling and/or team teach training certificates (or have the desire to complete these as part of your role). Due to the nature of pupil needs, it is also essential that you are able to deliver personal care.

Interviews will be taking place in school on Thursday 25th January 2018, so you must be available on this date.
