Job Ref:

Teaching Assistant x 3 required for specialist setting in Huddersfield, commencing September 2020.

A large SEMH school in South Huddersfield near the Yorkshire Sculpture Park are looking to appoint enthusiastic and motivated Teaching Assistants to join a dedicated care and support team. The school caters for pupils aged 11-19 with Social, Emotional, Mental Health needs.

This is an exciting time to join the school as they have made great progress over the last academic year, having recently undergone an Ofsted inspection and achieving a 'GOOD' status.

The school are seeking multiple Teaching Assistants and Lerning Support Assistants who can make a difference, building high quality relationships with children, parents, staff and other stakeholders. As the majority of students will have been out of structured education for almost 6 months by the time schools return in September, students will require additional support staff to help both emotionally and educationally. Many students who already have social, emotional, mental health needs may find it difficult to intergrate with their peers, have anxiety about returning to school and could have faced a number of challenges beyond those they would usually experience in their personal life due to COVID-19.

As a Teaching Assistant, responsibilities will include:

* Working closely with class teachers and other key professionals to plan, deliver and evaluate intervention programmes for pupils across school
* Fostering positive relationships with children, families and staff
* Remaining calm and responding sensitively to individual needs

* Working pro-actively to meet pupil's individual needs
* Support the social, emotional and mental well-being of pupils
* Promote the inclusion and acceptance of children with special needs within the classroom ensuring access to lessons and their content through appropriate clarification, explanation and resources

In addition to supporting pupils through targeted intervention, you may also be called upon to support individual pupils within class, supporting transition or providing assistance to access learning activities. You will work under the instruction of class teachers and be flexible to work across school, with pupils of all ages and abilities.

To apply and be considered for this position follow the link below or register on the Teaching Personnel website with an up to date CV.

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. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.
