Teaching Personnel are currently seeking new Teaching Assistants and Behaviour Support Assistants in the Guildford and the surrounding area to work in a specialist Social, Emotional and Mental Health provision catering to pupils with complex needs across either the Primary or Secondary SEN School.

The role will operate between 8:30 - 15:30, Monday - Friday.

Full time is preferred but part time applicants may still apply, as job shares can be available.

The Candidate:

Ideal candidates for being a teaching assistant may need to be able to drive but it isn't essential, as we will likely have a school local to you.

We are ideally wanting people who are available ASAP but with the current ongoing situation with Covid-19 this role may be subject to change or delay, however, whist we have other SEN schools currently open we are still looking for others suitable candidates so please still apply.
