I am currently recruiting for a SEND teaching assistant to work in a well-resourced special school in Wigan. The school are wishing to appoint an experienced teaching assistant to work on a one to one basis with a Y3 pupil with autism, although some small group intervention work may also be required.
This diverse and vibrant school caters to children from the age of 7-11 years old with varying SEND including ASC, global delay and ADHD. Experience of working with children on the ASC pathway will be an advantage to your application.
You will be expected to work closely with the class teacher and another TA who is permanently based in the class while also supporting their emotional and social development.
Benefits of the role
- Opportunity for CPD with this role for the right candidate.
- Competitive rate of pay
- Lovely working environment and supportive senior leadership team.
Excellent communication and interpersonal skills is a must and flexibility in the role will be expected. The role is due to start immediately and will be for 6 months with the possibility to be extended for the right candidate. If you have the required skills and experience, and you are committed to making a difference in children's lives then get in touch for a chat.
This is a temporary position.
If you are interested, then please contact Charlotte Holmes at Axcis Education on 0151 448 2810.
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.
