Do you have a passion for working with primary aged children?

Have you previously supported children with additional needs such as; Autism, SEMH and physical difficulties?

Tradewind is currently working with a large primary school in the Bedford (Kempston) area who supports their local community and provides an excellent hub for pupils to enjoy their life at School. The Head is on a journey to raise standards throughout and would like to strengthen the team for the summer term with the potential of carrying in the new academic year.

We are currently looking for a member of staff who can support a pupil on a 1:1 basis in KS2 and also work with other pupils from time to time. The pupil is on the autistic spectrum and can display challenging behaviour. If successful, you will be required to help the pupil access the curriculum and help with the pupils needs throughout the day.

  • Degree qualified or completed relevant SEN courses
  • Ideally one or more of the following; Team teach, Makaton, pecs, manual handling and other such courses
  • Excellent knowledge of the different types of special education needs
  • Outstanding communication skills
  • Able to work well as part of a team and on your own initiative
  • Can use effectively use visual aids (Makaton and pecs)
  • Up for a challenge!
  • Can start after the Easter break and commit for at least the summer term

If you meet the criteria mentioned, we would be keen to speak with you as soon as possible and potentially arrange a meeting with the Head after the Easter break. If successful, you will then start straight away and continue on a full-time basis for the rest of the academic year with the scope to continue in September.
