A wonderful SEND school in the heart of Bristol is urgently looking for Care Assistants to support students affected with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) within the classroom environment. Students within this setting are affected with a range of additional needs and will need support with moving, feeding and personal care. Care Assistants who have worked with young people aged 7- 16 and those with challenging behaviour will be at a distinct advantage
This is an excellent opportunity for experienced Care Assistants to gain experience within a special school setting. This role would be especially suitable for those who wish to pursue a Teaching Assistant vocation with students with SEND.
To qualify for this position, you must be available 3-5 days a week on a bank staff basis. Applicants without a current CRB/DBS certificate, a certified Manual Handling qualification and recent care experience will not be considered.
Finally you must be able to demonstrate a caring, enthusiastic, compassionate and professional personal nature, with a passion for supporting vulnerable young people to succeed.
This is a temporary position.
If you are interested, then please contact Louise Clifford at Axcis Education on 0117 373 6127
This is a temporary position unless otherwise stated.
Please note: The details of this job are correct as of the start of the school closures. We anticipate that there will still be a need to fill this vacancy either on the expected timescale (as many of the schools we work with will remain open to support SEND/Keyworker children) or when schools re-open. We are therefore continuing to accept applications but please bear with us as there may be a delay on the listed start date due to the fact that the situation is continually evolving.
