Are you an experienced TA or support worker in PMLD? Axcis want to hear from you!
Axcis have a full time vacancy for a TA at a well respected specialist school in Warmley working with primary aged children with SLD, PMLD and autism aged 3-19. They also cater for pupils with sensory impairments and physical disabilities. The hours will be 8:30-3:30pm Monday to Friday.
Rated 'Good' by Ofsted, this fantastic specialist school uses a range of innovative teaching methods to help their students make the most of their educational experience. The school is small but well resourced and has a fantastic atmosphere upon entering the grounds. The school provides activities such as Forest School, Hydrotherapy and Rebound Therapy. The school focuses strongly on therapeutic interventions such as Makaton, PECS and iPad use.
The role starts immediately and is five days a week, full time and will go on till the end of the term at least with potential to go on further for the right candidate. The position is general in-class support - you may be expected to work one to one, in small groups or providing general in-class support as required. Experience of working with children with PMLD is essential and you will be expected to do personal care as well as manual handling. Many of the children are non verbal and the ability to use Makaton would be highly advantageous. Ideally you will have been a TA before but you could also come from a support work or care background.
If you are a caring, friendly and patient individual then this could be just the kind of role you're looking for. The ideal candidate will be an experienced SEND teaching assistant who has worked with children with PMLD in a special needs environment. At Axcis, we value our teachers and support staff and the hard work they put in on a daily basis. This is why we always offer competitive rates of pay to ensure that their skills and experience are recognized.
To work for us you will need a valid DBS on the update service, if you don't have one on the update you will need to get a new one. To be on our books and be put forward for the role you will need to come in for a one hour registration meeting, we will also need a minimum of two references. We pay every week on a Friday, a week in arrears and the rate for teaching assistants is £60-£70 for the day.
This is a temporary position.

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.
