Axcis are currently recruiting teaching assistants for a part time role in the Hanham area of Bristol. We particularly want to talk to people who are unfazed by challenging behaviour, who are resilient and can remain calm under pressure.
This is to work with the key stage 3 pupils providing 1:1 support in a specialist unit within a mainstream school.
You must have a calm nature, be unfazed by challenging behaviour and have the ability to de-escalate situations should they arise. Empathy, understanding and a holistic approach are key attributes that the school and students respond well too, so much so that if you make a positive impression at this secondary school, a lot of our ad-hoc work turns into long term positions.
If you're looking for a supply agency that offers work in special schools and/or alternative provisions then Axcis is the recruitment agency for you. We can offer you a great daily rate and incentives like our monthly SEND giveaway prize, a refer a friend option that pays our £50 for referring a teaching assistant to us and £100 for teacher, as well as the opportunity to be nominated for (and possibly win) our sought-after Candidate of the Term award.
We consider ourselves to be the ethical agency and work closely with the national autistic society (NAS) and the national association of special educational needs (nasen) we have helped to fund numerous training and support initiatives which have helped to spread awareness and good practice.
This is a temporary position.
If you are interested, then please contact Suzie Sage at Axcis Education on 0117 373 6127.
