Teaching Personnel are working with a primary Pupil Referral Unit in Wigan. This school requires teaching assistants who are available for day to day work at present and after half term. This school caters for young people who are unable to access the mainstream education and mainstream classroom due to their social and emotional needs.

The young people at this school can display challenging behaviours that are shown through verbal and sometimes physical aggression. Experience working with young people who display challenging behaviours is desirable and will benefit when working with the young people within the school.

It would be desirable for the teaching assistant to have previous experience supporting young people academically who are not engaged with their education. It would also be desirable for the teaching assistant to have relevant verbal and physical de-escalation training such as Team-Teach, these however are not desirable. Teaching Personnel are able to provide relevant training if needed.

Teaching Assistants with Psychology, Sports, Health and Social Care, Forces / Military, Youth Worker and similar backgrounds tend to do best in this school.
