A friendly and amazing special needs school is looking for 10 - 20 Teaching Assistants to join them. At this school, their vision and mission is to:

  • Create a centre of excellence for SEN education, residential care and health services
  • Influencing policy, improving public awareness and supporting them, their families and professionals
  • Delivering and supporting pioneering health, education and social care research
  • Growing and diversifying Young Epilepsy services nationally, via local bases delivering services directly or through partnership working

You must be willing to work with students with a range of conditions such as Autism, ADHD, acquired brain injury, behaviour difficulties, epilepsy, moderate learning difficulties, non-weight bearing needs and profound multiple learning difficulties.

Ideal candidates will:

  • love working with children
  • work well with other staff and agencies
  • be motivated, have a positive attitude and enjoy a challenge
  • Have good numeracy, literacy and communication skills
  • Be determined to inspire and motivate children to achieve their full potential

You will be rewarded with

  • bookings for every week
  • excellent rates of pay of £300 - £325 per week!

If you have a passion for helping children achieve the best that they can every day, then we would love to hear from you!
