An exciting opportunity has arisen for a teaching assistant to offer support to pupils at a Secondary Provision, the students will all have an EHCP and a diagnosis of SEMH or ASD. The role could be extremely challenging on some days and will demand a lot of resilience. You will work in a team of Teaching Assistants to provide the best support network for the students.

Your role as a teaching assistant will be to support of the children within their educational setting. You will provide continuous provision to the pupils by helping them focus in class, be persistent with the schools behaviour management strategies, simplifying and breaking down instructions when needed. You will also need to build up trusting relationship with your pupils.
