Axcis Education are working with a new, purpose built school in Winkleigh, Mid Devon to recruit an experienced, resilient and engaging teaching assistant that has experience working with secondary aged pupils with autism who can display very challenging behaviour.
This is a full time role to assist small groups of pupils in a classroom setting across various subjects. The school cater for primary and secondary aged pupils and group the children according to ability rather than age, so you will need to be prepared to work with children from KS2 to KS4. This school provide a creative & nurturing learning environment, in addition to a range of therapies that support student social development.
The school is based in a semi rural location, 45 minutes from Exeter, Barnstaple and Oakhampton. Attached to an existing primary special school with a great reputation, the new secondary building will house 20 KS3 to KS5 pupils who all display very challenging behaviours.
The candidate must be passionate and dedicated in their job role. The school has a lovely group of teaching assistants who work together to provide the best care. The pay rate is £75 to £80 per day.
The school offer a very flexible environment where there is the opportunity for outside learning and a variety of alternative educational projects.
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.
