The Post - ALN Teaching Assistant

We are supporting an ALN school with their day to day and long term supply roles. Starting ASAP, they require full-time teaching assistants to cover the absence of permanent members of staff, with the successful candidates being required to take on a variety of roles across the school depending on the given staff absences that day. Flexibility is therefore an essential aspect of this role as your responsibilities can quickly change, with no two days likely to be the same.

The ideal ALN teaching assistant will have experience supporting children or adults with complex needs including medical needs and personal care. Ideally you will have previous classroom experience along with strong communication and interpersonal skills, however if you have limited classroom experience and ALN support work to date but are willing to learn and can work confidently as part of a team then we would love to hear from you.

The School - ALN School

Based in Flintshire and with excellent transport links into Denbighshire and West Cheshire, this ALN school caters for a range of special educational needs for children from across the authority. These secondary aged pupils have a range of physical and medical needs impacting on their educational needs. Classes are small and there is a high volume of teaching assistants present to support their needs, with an alternative curriculum in place to develop both the pupil's life skills as well as their education.
