- Full time (school hours)
- Working within Key Stage 1 and 2
- Immediate starts and January positions
- £10 an hour
Teaching Personnel are working with SEN Schools across Somerset, who are looking for Teaching Assistants to join their team. The schools can cater for pupils aged 5-12 years with Autism, Moderate to Severe Learning Difficulties (MLS & SLD) and Complex needs. The schools follow the National Curriculum and run similarly to a mainstream primary school, with small class sizes of around 6-8 pupils.
You will be working as a class-based Teaching Assistant. This will involve supporting the teacher with the lessons and helping pupils with their work. You will also be required to support children on a 1-1 basis and will be responsible for behaviour management and providing emotional support.
The ideal candidate will be an enthusiastic, pro-active person who has a real passion for supporting children with special needs. Experience in a school setting is not required, but you should have some experience working with children or adults with special needs.
