Axcis have a wonderful opportunity working with a school in Exeter who specialize in visual impairment. The school requires a full time teaching assistant to support children aged from 14 - 25 years old, with VI and moderate learning difficulties. Many of the children have complex needs, so we are seeking a candidate who has experience working with these requirements. The role is from 8:45 - 3:45, Monday to Friday and pays a rate of £75 per day.
The school has outstanding resources including therapy sessions, a hydro pool, an art sensory room, mobility training and their very own VI radio station produced and presented by the students. The school has a free car park and is easy to get to by bus.
The suitable candidate will be passionate in their role to support children with complex needs in a classroom environment. You must also be caring, a good communicator and determined. The classes are grouped according to ability in small groups with up to 6 children per class.
If you have previous experience working with people who have VI and would like to work in a lovely school, then please get in touch. With the right candidates our roles can lead to a permanent position which could lead to further training such as NVQ's and online courses.
This is a temporary position.
If you are interested, then please contact Kirsty OReilly at Axcis Education on .
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.
