A Specialist School in the centre of Swindon are looking for a recent Psychology graduate to join their support team and work with their students coping with social, emotional and mental health needs. This is an ideal role for a graduate hoping to become a trained Psychologist in the future, with a genuine interest in supporting children with psychological needs.

The students at this school come from diverse backgrounds, with some facing challenges related to trauma, neglect, attachment issues and anxiety. They require support to help manage their emotions in a healthy manner, enabling them to regulate and process their feelings, and cope independently in the future. You will therefore need to be resilient, supportive and passionate about mental health support.

Your daily duties will involve collaborating with the class teacher and other experienced staff members to educate the pupils. You will help to manage any challenging behaviours that arise, as well as working on a one-to-one basis to ensure they are on task. Additionally, you will play a role in identifying potential triggers for the pupils in regard to their trauma and mental health needs.

This is the perfect opportunity for a Psychology Graduate to build their experience working with children who need psychological support. You will help facilitate various therapeutic techniques, as well as employing restorative practices aimed at promoting mental well-being. You will also get the chance to work alongside Psychologists and Therapists based at the school, setting you aside from other graduates!

The ideal Psychology Graduate will be proactive and friendly, with a passion for mental health. Any previous experience working with children and/or adults with additional needs would be beneficial.
