I am working with a SEND school in Wigan that is looking for 2 Teaching Assistants to join their team. Both roles are due to start in September and will last until Easter, with the potential to turn permanent. Working Monday – Friday, 8.30 – 3.30pm, the school are looking to meet with potential staff prior to the start date.
Catering for children with Severe Learning Difficulties and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties. This school has a strong parent and staff network, and the education and safety of students is at the centre of everything they do. The staff here work together to ensure students can flourish socially, emotionally and academically. With excellent facilities on site, such as sensory zones, this school offers a wide range of learning pathways via a curriculum tailored to suit each student’s needs.
As the successful applicant, you will support the education and development of students in a happy and safe environment, whilst encouraging interpersonal relationships. You will ensure students feel socially included at all times, whilst promoting independence. Each student you work with will have a an Education Health Care Plan in place and will be working on a bespoke curriculum which will have a wide degree of overlap with a mainstream curriculum, therefore you will be required to support with Maths and English as required. Although both positions are in Key Stage 3 Classrooms, there may be occassions when you will have to work in other classrooms.
In order to apply for this role, you must have a DBS on the Update Service or be willing to apply for a new one. Is is essential you have experience working with Severe Learning Difficulties in either an academic or residential setting. Any supporting qualifications such as Team Teach Training or British Sign Language would be advantageous when applying for this role, yet not essential.
