Job description

Are you looking for long term work? Do you have a passion to work with children? Have you had experience with SEN and Speech and Language?

A fantastic and rewarding opportunity has arisen at a well reputed Primary school in the heart of Burnley. Teaching Personnel are working closely with the Head Teacher to get a clear understanding of the schools needs and requirements to ensure they get a suitable new member of staff to join their welcoming and successful team. The Head Teacher has stressed she is looking for a qualified SEN Teaching Assistant with fantastic understanding of supporting children with Speech and Language difficulties. It is also crucial the candidate has strong behaviour management and can handle possible challenging behaviour. You must be driven, confident and be able to form good relationships with all staff and pupils.

Secure yourself a long term position, with the potential for the role to become permanent. The position is starting after the February half term working 1:1 with a young child with Speech and Language needs and is currently working below age expectations. The school is located just outside Burnley Town Centre and its pupils are predominantly from white British backgrounds. This one form entry school has recently rapidly improved from 'Special Measures' to 'Good' due to a change in Headship. The Head Teacher is keen to recruit dedicated members of staff who have a 'passion working with children' and who can 'further strengthen an already strong and hardworking team'.

The salary is based on a 6.5 hour day, Monday to Friday, and depending on experience, this could vary between £8.40-£10.50 per hour.
