Together with our partner school and specialist education provider, we are seeking keen and motivated individuals, who are willing to get 'stuck in' from the first day of work. If you are looking to begin or develop your career within the education sector, this could be the school for you!
You will work with pupils, who have SEMH and/or autism, which means you will need to manage very challenging and disruptive behaviours on a regular, day to day basis. Class sizes are much smaller than a mainstream school and ratios of support staff to pupils are high - due to the needs and requirements outlined on each pupil's EHCP and learning plans. No two days will be the same at work; one day you could be working 1:1 and the next in a class of 5-8 pupils with different needs and abilities.
If you are looking for a new challenge, more of a work/life balance or just a total change from long healthcare shifts - get in touch with Sophia today, to start our registration process and discuss your work preferences!
In addition to excellent support throughout the vetting process and your work placements, Teaching Personnel can offer you a wide range of CPD courses in SEN, to support you in your career. Courses include Teaching Assistant Diplomas, Child Psychology and Understanding Autism.
