Teaching Assistant required for 1:1 social, emotional and mental health-SEMH support at a special needs secondary school in Stratford.
Axcis is currently working with a special needs secondary school in Stratford who require an experienced Teaching Assistant to provide 1:1 support for a 16 year old male pupil with SEMH. The student may often become distressed and show a lack of boundary understanding in their response to challenging situations in class. Therefore the teaching assistant must be confident in behaviour management and intervention techniques, always maintaining a patient approach. This is a full-time, long-term role with the potential to become permanent. The school are looking to appoint as soon as possible.
The SEND school is easily accessible by public transport and car. The school provides a number of benefits for all staff as well as a number of internal facilities such as therapy rooms.
The ideal candidate for the Teaching Assistant role will:
- Have experience working with young people with challenging behaviour in either a school, care or childcare setting
- Have proven experience or confidence with positive intervention
- Have an experienced and proactive approach to giving 1:1 support for older children
- 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.
