Care Support/Teaching Assistant required for 1:1 PMLD support at a special needs school in Maidenhead.
Axcis are currently working with a special needs secondary school in Maidenhead who require an experienced Care Support/Teaching Assistant to provide 1:1 care for a 15 year old male pupil with PMLD. The student will need assistance with personal care and struggles with mobility around the classroom. Therefore the support/teaching assistant must be confident in manual handling. This role is ongoing with the potential to become long-term.
The SEND school is easily accessible by public transport and car. The school provides a number of benefits including free parking for all staff as well as a number of internal facilities such as a hydro-therapy pool and sensory/therapy rooms.
The ideal candidate for the Care Support/Teaching Assistant role will:
- Have experience working in either a school, care or childcare setting
- Have proven experience or confidence with manual handling
- Have an experienced and proactive approach to giving 1:1 support for older children with limited mobility
- Hold an enhanced DBS that must be on the updated service (if you do not have one Axcis can assist you in attaining one)
This is a temporary position.
If you are interested, then please contact Naomi Bateson at Axcis Education on 020 7580 2956.
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.
