SEN Teaching Assistant Required Immediately

Posted 25 September by Plymouth Education
Are you a teaching assistant looking for a bit of a change and new direction?

Reed Education are rapidly growing and we are looking to appoint new SEN Teaching Assistants to get started immediately! We are working with Special Needs Schools all over Plymouth and due to demand, are looking for new and experienced staff to join us! 

We are recruiting for flexible candidates who are available for day to day work on a supply basis. There is a huge demand for staff who can cover sickness and general absense in SEN schools across Plymouth, and we need you! We are specifically looking for people who have a can do attitude and are hard-working in all aspects of their professional life. 

It is essential that you have experience working as a Teaching Assistant in either a mainstream or special needs environment. If you are coming from a mainstream background, we would specifically look for people who have experience working on a 1:1 basis with a student who has additional needs, or similar. 

It is desired from the schools we work with that you are familiar with or open to providing aspects of personal care, including personal hygiene, administering medication and feeding the students. 

We are generally looking for anyone who has the right personal attributes to exceed in this type of environment, including resillience, personability, an innately caring nature, organisational skills, positivity and a vibrance for life. 

Due to the nature of this work, no two days are the same, hence you will need to be open to working in different schools with students who have varying needs and levels of severity of needs. It is therefore mandatory to be successful in this type of role that you are extremely open minded and flexible. We often have prebooked work, so there are opportnities for you to know where you are working for the week, however we also get calls early morning from schools requiring cover for the day, so it is essential that you are available for these- which can be anytime from 7am.

You do not need to be a qualified Teaching Assistant. It is also not essential that you drive, however you will need to have access to transport to get to work for 0830hrs.

Reed Specialist Recruitment Limited is an employment agency and employment business

Application questions

Are you available for early morning calls for work on the day?
Are you fairly flexible on the days you can work?
