Axcis are pleased to be working with several pupil referral units in Newport who are looking to recruit youth workers experienced in working with children with SEMH needs. If you are interested in transitioning to teaching assistant work, this is your chance. We work with a number of pupil referral units in the Newport area . They are seeking patient people experienced in challenging behaviour and SEMH. A lot of the children have been excluded from mainstream schools many times and this is their last chance of an education. Those trained in Team Teach and MAPA would be at an advantage. These children need a resilient and positive role model and the right candidate will be treat them with empathy and compassion.
The pupil referral units use alternative approaches to help pupils to become confident and happy young people who are capable of regulating their emotions and contributing positively to society. The pupil referral units have beautiful grounds and the children are encouraged to grow vegetables, go to forest school and participate in outdoors activities such as horse riding and archery.
To work for us you need to have a DBS on the update service, if you don't have one on the update servic ethen you will need to get a new one which will cost you £50. We also need a minimum of two references, one covering the last year and one with adults or children with special needs.
If you're looking for a supply agency that offers work in special schools and/or alternative provisions then Axcis is the recruitment agency for you. We can offer you a great daily rate and incentives like our monthly SEND giveaway prize, a refer a friend option that pays our £50 for referring a teaching assistant to us and £100 for teacher, as well as the opportunity to be nominated for (and possibly win) our sought-after Candidate of the Term award. We consider ourselves to be the ethical agency and work closely with the national autistic society (NAS) and the national association of special educational needs (nasen) we have helped to fund numerous training and support initiatives which have helped to spread awareness and good practice.
This is a temporary role.

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.
