Tradewind are recruiting! Are you a Sports coach with experience of working with children? One of our client schools are looking for a Teaching Assistant with Sports background in Yeovil.

Role will be working as a teaching assistant to work in a reputable special needs school catering for Secondary aged students with Autism and to support them in and out of the classroom.

After visiting the school, the school facilities and the expertise of the staff really impressed us. Behaviour of the pupils were well managed but also supported in a caring, friendly and nurturing manner. Staff seemed to be happy and working well together. It was incredible to see such young person-centred care given to students.

There is a strong leadership team that has got over 30 years of experience in supporting young people with special needs. There is great support network around the students and staff including educational psychologists and local authority staff as well as great sports facilities and hydro therapy pool.
