Job description

A co-educational secondary school that is located in the Stretford area of south Manchester is looking to recruit an SEN Teaching Assistant from January.

The majority of support will take within the core subjects of Maths and English at the lower KS3 level. Working within the school’s internal resource centre will find the SEN Teaching Assistant supporting the lead teacher with the teaching of a variety of subject material. This will involve working with students in a similar way to general classes but sometimes on a 1:1 basis.
