Job descriptionTeaching Assistant - SEN - Autism - Lichfield
Are you an experienced SEN Teaching Assistant looking for a new challenge?
I am currently recruiting for a special educational needs school based in Lichfield that are looking to appoint some new SEN teaching assistants to join their team. The positions are on day to day and long-term basis with a view to go permanent for the right people. The school are seeking graduate, Level 2/3 qualified teaching assistants with experience working with children with Autism.
As a SEN teaching assistant you will be working alongside the class teacher and supporting pupils with everyday school life, however, there will be times that you will need to be supporting children on a one to one and small groups bases independently. You will be a source of support for pupils and will ensure they are motivated, happy and engaged.
The school seeks to appoint a Teaching Assistant qualified to Level 3 or equivalent and who is experienced in working with children with ASC, ASD, Autism. The successful candidate will work to support the transition of a young person back into school. It is essential that the successful candidate is comfortable working with the young person in their home, in the community and in school aiming to increase attendance and support the development of confidence and social skills. It is anticipated that in the short to medium term the majority of the work in this post will be in the young person's home; the successful candidate will need to work closely with the young person's family supported by professionals in school.
The successful candidate will bring at least 1 years of experience to the role and a desire to work with children with SEN. You will be empathetic and determined to make a difference.
One of our teaching assistants placed at this school has said "This is great school to work at. The staff are really friendly, supportive and make you feel part of the team from day one. I was nervous at first to go in the school, but the school is ran so well and the structure is amazing".
I am really happy to be working with this school as they really care about their students and staff. It is a very large school and they have so many facilities for their pupils. There are many SEN TAs employed in the school and everyone has a really good work ethic.
I am very keen to speak with specialist SEN teaching assistants who are perfect for this position. if you feel that this is you, please get in touch ASAP by clicking apply on this or calling myself Wayne on 0121 314 3606 or
