Teaching Assistant

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

Our school in the Salford area is looking to recruit Teaching Assistants to start in September 2019.

The School

The school caters to students age 11-16 and allows support throughout their transition into adulthood.
The students study an adapted and varied curriculum which is heavily focused on functional and life skills, promoting confidence, maturity and independence.

The needs of the students vary; many have social and emotional needs or mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. Some may have further Special Educational needs such as ADHD or Dyslexia which contribute to their educational situation.
Some students may pose challenging and volatile behaviours so applicant discretion is advised.

The Role

Your role as Teaching Assistant begins at 8.30am, and you will support an assigned student or group of students throughout their school day until 3.30pm.
In the classroom you will ensure they are interacting and socialising appropriately, understand the work or activity and their behaviour is appropriate for the environment.
Having a knowledge of SEMH would be ideal to help you understand the needs and behaviours of the students you work with. Any experience in education or childcare is also welcome.
Your attitude needs to be enthusiastic and non-judgemental, with a passion for care and supporting children's development. You will need to be patient and calming, but also conscientious as attention to detail is key for the well-being of the students.

Please be aware all applicants MUST have a child only workforce DBS, which is registered to the update system or be willing to apply for one.
