Full time Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant Wanted - Based in a Secondary school in Monmouthshire supporting pupils within their resource base - September Start

Specialist Teaching Assistants in schools perform a vital function of bridging the gap between what teachers are teaching and what students are learning. This is challenging enough in a mainstream school, but if students have any additional learning needs, then teaching assistants need to be skilled and able spin the plates of pushing students to maximise progress, supporting them pastorally, catering to their additional needs, managing their behaviour, and building rapport to gain their trust.

Does this sound like the sort of challenge you'd be interested in?

The headteacher of this Secondary School have asked us to recruit for a full time position. The role is initially temporary until the end of the academic year with the plan to be permanent as long as it is right for all. Most of the teaching is done on a 1:1 basis, so that students' individual needs can be catered for, unlike in a mainstream setting where they can be lost in the noise of 30 others. You will be based in the resource base full time to support a pupil with autism and other additional needs.

This role has become available due to increased funding for the pupil but you may also be asked to work with other pupils who are similar. The school have an excellent reputation for supporting special needs and getting learners to achieve their true potential.

Ideal Teaching assistant:

* Experience with special needs - can be personal, voluntary or paid
* Available full time and able to start September 2nd
* Experience working with children
* Able to provide 2 recent references

Due to COVID-19 interviews are to be held over the next few weeks via Skype, zoom or Microsoft teams.

If this sounds like the job for you then please apply today!
