PRU Teaching Assistant

Manchester, Greater Manchester
Tradewind are currently recruiting for a Teaching Assistant for a Pupil Referral Unit in South Manchester. The role is full time, for long term until at Easter 2021.

The Pupil Referral Unit is an Outstanding Ofsted rated school providing for KS3 and KS4 students who have struggled in mainstream school environments due to a number of factors including SEN, behavioural challenges and or difficult backgrounds and home lives. Students at this school will have EHCPs in place and so the ideal person for this role really needs to have worked experience of supporting and implementing ECHPs.

Essential requirements:
● Experience supporting young people with behavioural difficulties.
● Experience or training with positive handling, Team Teach, MAPA or other similar restraint training.
● Experience supporting students with SEN, SEMH and or SEBD.
● Positive and friendly approach.
● A caring and professional manner, willing to support with the social and academic improvement of pupils.
● Must have legal right to work in the UK.

Often the students who attend are at risk of failure. The aim is to teach them the skills to be successful, helping overcome barriers to learning, which may be about improving their behaviour, communication or some other aspects of their learning.

Staff here should be unfazed by challenging behaviour or outbursts of bad language. You will need to be passionate about supporting all students, regardless of ability. The class sizes are much smaller than in mainstream schools (up to 8 students) so they can offer intensive levels of support. Roles such as these are challenging but can also be incredibly rewarding.
