SEMH Teaching Assistant

Posted 4 January by Teaching Personnel

Wonderful opportunity for a primary Teaching Assistant to support pupils with additional needs. 

Teaching Personnel are working with a Secondary SEMH School in the Wirral, seeking a full time Teaching Assistant to join their team. The school caters for pupils aged 5-12 years with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs (SEMH). Pupils may also have additional needs such as ADHD and Autism. The school follows the National Curriculum and runs similarly to a mainstream primary school, with small class sizes of around 6-8 pupils.

You will be working as a class-based Teaching Assistant. This will involve supporting the teacher with the lessons and helping pupils with their work. You will also be required to support children on a 1-1 basis and will be responsible for behaviour management and providing emotional support. 

The ideal candidate will be an enthusiastic, pro-active person who has a real passion for supporting children with behaviour needs. Experience in a school setting isn't required, but you should have some experience working with children with behaviour needs. You must be a confident and resilient person.

You must have a minimum of GCSE Maths and English (C or above) and ideally will be Team Teach trained (Teaching Personnel can assist you with this).
