Job description

Aspire People are working with an Alternative Provision School based in Solihull who are looking for a Teaching Assistant to start as soon as possible on a long term basis.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working with primary and secondary age students with SEN needs, and have worked with pupils with some of the following conditions SEMH, EBD, ASD and Severe Challenging Behaviour.

As a SEN Teaching Assistant, you would be treated as one of the team and schools would expect the following:

Continuously raising standards for our pupils and improving their outcomes and life chances

Being creative, proactive, resourceful, energetic and very well organised

Working within a caring and safe environment and reflecting the school's priority of placing pupils at the heart of all it does

Developing your own professional development to ensure you have up to date knowledge, skills and understanding in teaching pupils with severe/complex learning difficulties

At least 6 months experience of working with SEND Pupils

Hold a Level 3 qualification

Team Teach qualification would also be advantageous.

We have built up an excellent relationship with a number of provisions across the region and have placed many candidates in these schools, some of whom have had the opportunity to become a permanent member of staff. As these roles involve working with pupils who are not able to access education in mainstream schools, the behaviour can be difficult. We do look for candidates who have strong personalities, be able to work through issues the pupils display and be able to stand up to the physical demands of the work.

Aspire People will offer fantastic rates of pay, support from your consultant and the chance of building relationships with a range of SEND Schools throughout the area.

This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your skills in a positive environment where you will have the chance to build upon or gain further experience. We offer very good rates of pay and a supportive consultant who is available 24/7 should you need me.

I am keen to talk to qualified Teaching Assistants, Learning Support Assistants, or those who are looking for a career in education who have experience of children with challenging behaviour. If this is the opportunity you have been looking for please apply and I will be in touch to discuss your requirements and the role available in more detail.
