A SEN Teaching Assistant is needed for immediate supply positions at an outstanding SEN school in Wallsend. We are looking for candidates with Post 16 experience of children with complex needs/PMLD and ASD to work in small groups or a one to one basis. Experience in teaching or supporting children with any of the above needs would be an advantage but is not essential - a willingness to learn and engage with SEN children is the most important quality we are looking for. Ideally you will have a Teaching Assistant qualification and possess a Team Teach qualification and or a manual handling qualification but this is not essential. You must be proactive and be prepared to help with personal care of the learners. In addition, you will ideally be happy to assist the pupils when they go swimming. Posts vary from short term to long term but we require staff that are flexible and willing to learn from experience staff at the school.
You will have or be prepared to obtain a DBS check and we will need to carry out our vetting checks in a face to face interview at our Sunderland office. In addition, we will need to take up at least two references.
Premier Teachers Ltd is a local, friendly teaching agency which provides expert advice and support to teachers and schools as we are all teachers ourselves.
