SEN Teaching Assistant

Salford, Greater Manchester

Tradewind are recruiting!

I am delighted to be working with an outstanding secondary special school in Salford, who are looking for a 1:1 SEN Teaching Assistant to start on 10/05/21 or ASAP on a full time and long term basis with the potential to turn permanent for the right person. Pay up to £75/day.

To join us and be successful in this SEN Teaching Assistant role, you will need to:

  • Be subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure, Overseas Police Clearances (if applicable) and professional references checks.
  • Provide a CV with at least 10 years employment/education history included and any employment breaks must be explained.
  • Have the legal right to work in the UK.

You will be required to support a pupil in Year 10 with Autism and Complex Needs on a 1:1 basis as well as other pupils in the class from time to time. The pupil is working at primary level and can also display challenging behaviour as a result of sensory triggers and anxiety as well as frustrations with understanding social situations and work. as their new SEN Teaching Assistant it will be your role to notice these and help the young person get to a point where they can successfully self-regulate in most scenarios. This is a fantastic chance to make a real difference to this young person's ability to engage with the world around them and improve their quality of life.

The school has high expectations on what each pupil can achieve in terms of personal development and learning progress so you will also be required to support the class teacher with implementing any activities and lessons. Ideally you will have some prior experience as a SEN Teaching Assistant although people from other backgrounds such as mainstream school roles or care will also be considered.

About the school:

  • Special school for young people with Autism, Complex Needs and SEMH.
  • Rated OUTSTANDING by Ofsted.
  • Staff are expert at creating exciting and engaging classrooms and tailoring their lessons at just the right level for each individual.
  • They make sure they offer a tailored approach that focuses on personal development and increasing opportunities for young people after school.
  • They follow the national curriculum where possible and pupils are grouped by ability as well as age. They provide Entry Level, Key Skills, Foundation and GCSE level lessons.
  • Everyone mucks in with different tasks and responsibilities and helps each other out so the new SEN Teaching Assistant will need to be adaptable and happy to work as part of a team.
