Do you have a passion for supporting children with Special Educational Needs?

Reed Education are currently recruiting for Teaching Assistants with Manual Handling for our special school client based in the South of Glamorgan.

The school provide education and support on a day basis to pupils aged 3 - 19 years who have a range of special education needs (SEN) including Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD), Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) and those on the Autistic Spectrum (ASD).

They currently require Teaching Assistants for long term and supply cover to work within their well resourced School. You will be required to provide 1:1 support for pupils with a specific physical disability who require manual handling, personal care and hosting in and out of a wheelchair on a daily basis. You may also be required to provide general and in class support.

Previous experience of working with Physical Disabilities and Severe Learning Difficulties is a requirement, and all applicants must be willing to assist with personal care. Teaching Assistants with Manual Handling, Peg Feeding and Medical Administration training are highly desirable. Many of the children are non-verbal and therefore the ability to use communication aids such as PECS and Makaton would be advantageous. If you are a caring, friendly and patient person or have a care/support worker background then this would be an ideal role for you.
