1:1 Year 5 Teaching Assistant, M14
- Weekly rate of pay (£250-350)
- Team-Teach qualification highly desirable
- Experience of supporting children with challenging behaviours
A full time Teaching Assistant opportunity has become available in a two form entry primary school in Central Manchester, (M14). The school are looking to recruit an enthusiastic teaching assistant with experience supporting pupils with significant barriers to learning and who display challenging behaviour. The suitable candidate will be supporting a Year 5 LAC boy.
Highlights of the post include;
*1:1 Behaviour Support
*Year 5 boy with behavioural challenges
*Strong supportive Head teacher
*Emphasis on Continued Professional Development
The Year 5 boy has struggled with staying in the classroom and has violent outbursts with other children and staff. The ideal candidate will be able to set clear boundaries, build a positive relationship and maintain a professional relationship.
Due to the pupil being transitioned into full time education the incoming teaching assistant will help this child stay in the classroom and support with his academic studies. The child has an attachment disorder and has violent outbursts so the ideal teaching assistant will have experience of supporting children with challenging behaviours or experience in a residential care setting. A Team-Teach qualification is highly desirable.
The pupils come from a white British background and a low number of pupils with EAL. To be considered for this Year 5 1:1 teaching assistant role, you will need to have a teaching assistant qualification/degree and significant experience working with children who display challenging behaviours or a psychology degree.
If you meet the above criteria and are interested in working as a teaching assistant then please email your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org straight away or call 0161 242 1792.
