Do you have experience working with Special Educational Needs?

Are you looking to use your skills and experience in a school environment?

Teaching Personnel are working exclusively with a SEMH Provision in Reading that is currently looking for staff to start as soon as possible. The school cater for primary and secondary pupils that have been excluded from mainstream school, therefore all the pupils have challenging behaviour.

ADHD

The majority of the current vacancies are for full time, permanent Support Assistants who would work 1:1 or in small groups with these pupils.

Candidates that are suited for this type of school tend to have experience in some of the following:

* Psychology

As a Teaching Assistant, you'll typically need to:

* Follow instructions from Teachers in order to support effectively in the class room

* Ensure you're up-to-date on your knowledge of local service provision for appropriate signposting and referrals
* Support students on 1:1, adapting your approach on a case by case basis in order to engage students effectively
* Coach, mentor and motivate children to understand the benefits of relevant activities
