Teaching Assistant

Job description

Teaching Personnel are currently looking to recruit a passionate and experienced Teaching Assistant to work within our SEN schools.

This school that is looking for a Teaching Assistant is a specialist school for children and young people who have Complex Learning Difficulties or Disabilities (CLDD).This means that the pupils usually have more than one part of themselves that affects their ability to learn. These parts interact with each other to create a unique picture in terms of their individual learning needs and abilities. People with CLDD are unlikely to fit into a ready-made learning framework, and need a very personalised learning pathway put together for them.

They have skilled staff with different types of expertise who can collaborate together - as well as with external consultants where needed - to create learning approaches for individual pupils, based on finding out about that particular pupil. They specialise in taking pupils who are at the most complex end of the spectrum, ie. children and young people whose ability to learn has been most affected by their difficulties and disabilities.

To work under the guidance of the class teacher to support teaching and learning in the classroom

To promote the inclusion of all pupils ensuring they have equal access to opportunities to learn and develop
To be aware of and comply with policies and procedures relating to child protection, health and safety, security and confidentiality, reporting all concerns to an appropriate person
To work 1:1 with an allocated student and provide support in all educational areas.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualification and training for this role. For teacher roles, we require a formally recognised teaching qualification. For Support staff our minimum requirement is GCSE English & Maths (A-C) or equivalent.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay.
