Year 1 SEN and General TA role

Job description

A Catholic School in the heart of Blackburn BB2, who work under the Salford Diocese and in partnership with Teaching Personnel have approached the agency in order to source a member of staff. The role that has been specified by the School is to begin from as early as next week and will continue for the foreseeable, with the expectation being until the end of the academic year (and with the view to applying for the role for a September start).

The role is one that will require a committed and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant who is keen to make a difference in the classroom and also make a difference to an individual child's life. The child who requires 0.8 of the timetable in support is currently working with the P-Scale levels and so the School are keen to implement a number of intervention sessions. They are hoping with the quality of Teaching Assistant and the well structured intervention, they will be able to see a difference with the child within half a term. The Head teacher has mentioned that the successful candidate will be someone who has good English and Maths subject knowledge and pedagogy, and also someone who possesses a nurturing personality as the child does have difficulty building relationships with new members of staff.

As this is a specialist teaching assistant role, the school will be looking to question the apply candidates about their recent experience working alongside children with Autism. You must be able to provide information on how you have previously raised standards in the classroom and how you can impact further in this School.

The School is currently working under the Salford Catholic Diocese and so they will ensure the Christian faith is upheld and the ethos is promoted. The Head teacher specified also that they will not be looking actively for someone with a Christian faith, but the applying applicants must be able to uphold the Christian ethos.

There are a number of pre-requisites in order to apply for this role through Teaching Personnel; you must hold a Level 2 Teaching Assistant qualification or above; you must have a Maths and English GCSE at C grade or above; you must have experience in working alongside children with Autism; you must be fun and engaging.

To apply for the role then please contact me in the office on 01772 842154 or email me with an update CV and cover email.

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.
