Then we may have the role for you!

As we are currently seeking a teaching assistant to join our increasingly growing team of passionate educators at Teaching Personnel.

The position is within a secure centre and you’ll be supporting a pupil on a 1:1 basis. The pupils attend the centre due to having emotional and behavioural difficulties, so the centre are looking to appoint somebody with prior experience working alongside adults or children who have behavioural difficulties.

The centre is known to appoint individuals who aren’t phased by this high tariff of behavioural difficulties and have a keen interest in physical activities outside of work. This is because the centre are happy for the successful candidate to take pupils outside to engage them in physical activity when pupils are struggling to engage in the work.

Particular personal or professional experience of supporting individuals with emotional and behavioural difficulties (EBD) or Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs (SEMH) is highly desirable, such as an understanding of the complexities related to this. The ideal candidate would have a good knowledge of teaching and behaviour strategies relevant to this.

A Team-Teach qualification or relevant qualification (e.g. PBM/PROACT-SCIP/MAPA) are highly desirable, but not essential. Teaching Personnel also offer a range of CPD courses including Team-Teach, Introduction to Autism and Moving and Handling so don’t worry!

So are you passionate about inspiring and motivating SEMH pupils to access the curriculum. An understanding and flexible nature is essential, and the school is particularly keen to have candidates who are proactive, empathetic, engaging and creative. Candidates should use their personality to engage with these students. This is a fantastic opportunity to show what you can do and put your skills into practice and show how you can positively encourage all pupils to overcome barriers to learning which will be extremely rewarding.

Should you require any additional information regarding this role, or to apply for the position, please contact Chris your SEN specialist on 01792 473 300 or send a copy of your CV through.

I look forward to hearing from you.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see teachingpersonnel.com/faqs for details.

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

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
