Behaviour support Assistant

  • Full time role
  • Work one a one to one basis
  • Team Teach qualification or equivalent desirable for this role.
  • To start asap

Tradewind Recruitment are working closely with a school in the Sheffield area catering to children aged 7 - 11 with complex emotional and social needs, many of whom have a diagnosis of Autism.

We are seeking an experienced and nurturing Classroom assistant to work within classes of no more than 8 or 9 students at a time. The role will include supporting pupils with all aspects of the curriculum as well as nurturing pupils emotional and social skills. As this student is considered vulnerable they are still attending school through this new lockdown period meaning this role is to start as soon as possible.

Enrichment activities feature heavily in the curriculum to help to engage the pupils, these involve music, art and activities taking place outside of the classroom such as gardening and animal care. There is an expectation that the appointed person will also support students with these activities.

The successful person should have experience supporting children with complex needs and be confident dealing with challenging behaviour. A Team Teach qualification or similar would be highly beneficial although this is something we can support with.

A Teaching assistant qualification would be beneficial to this role but not essential as prior experience in a similar setting is most important.

Pay - £65.00 - £85.00 per day
