Job description

SEN Support Worker

Long term role


Do you have experience in the care sector?

Are you looking for more sociable hours?

Are you a PMLD specialising SEN Teaching Assistant looking for long term work?

Teaching Personnel have partnerships with SEN schools across South Wales that need PMLD specialising Teaching Assistant to start work immediately.

Ideal Candidate:

  • Experience in residential care or supporting SEN within a professional or personal capacity.
  • Manual Handling Training is beneficial but not essential as we can offer this training through our CPD academy.
  • Ability to use your initiative in challenging situations.

We are always looking for candidates with excellent communication skills, the ability to build relationships with pupils, and a great understanding of the specific needs of children with PMLD. Majority of pupils are wheelchair users, are medically dependent and require support with personal care. Pupils have access to fantastic facilities which include: Hydrotherapy pool, sensory rooms and onsite physiotherapists

Many of the pupils have low mobility so urgently require someone who is Moving & Handling trained. The pupils need someone with experience who is dedicated to working with SEN pupils. They need to be confident in the classroom and have innovative ways of helping PMLD students. The lessons are delivered to be sensory stimulating and interactive for the pupils, so experience with this type of lesson is advantageous.

Worried you have little experience within the classroom - do not panic! I am looking for the right personality to fully flourish in this role. We are also running a Manual Handling All Wales Passport course in the not too distant future to ensure you are raring and ready to go.

For more information please get in touch with our Specialist SEN Branch here at Teaching Personnel at your earliest convenience using the below email address and phone number.
