Axcis Education is currently looking for a reliable teaching assistant with SEND experience to work in a special school that is located in the Hackney area (East London). The successful candidate will provide 1:1 support to an 11 year old boy. All applicants must be willing to assist with personal care.
This role will start 2nd of September 2020 and you will be working the hours of 8:30 - 16:00 Monday to Friday term time only. This is a position that will be available for the 2020/2021 academic year. This is a fantastic opportunity for a teacher assistant who wants to excel in their career and learn different types and methods of teaching.
Previous experience of working with PMLD is a requirement. Many of the children in the school are non verbal and therefore the ability to use communication aids such as PECS and Makaton would be an advantage. You will be provided with ongoing training throughout your role.
This is a lovely friendly school to work in with very support staff.
The successful applicant will be required to have an enhanced DBS check.
Axcis offer candidates a range of CPD courses - including (but not limited to):
L2 Safeguarding, Autism Awareness and Team Teach.
Access to partner events - we have professional partnerships with a range of special needs charities and organisations and are often involved in conferences and events to which we may be able to offer free or discounted tickets.
Free monthly giveaway prize draws to win useful SEND teaching resources, books and activities
News updates, resources and a host of useful content through our social media platforms
Recognition of our staff through our "Candidate of the Term" awards and social events.
This is a temporary position.
If you are interested, then please contact Emma O'Connor 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.
