SEN School located in Merton is currently recruiting a behavioural SEN Teaching Assistant (SEMH & Complex Needs). This is a full time post to start immediately!
Pupils who attend this SEN School have been diagnosed with behavioural SEN; ie SEMH/ PDA/ ODD/ Complex Needs/ CAMHS and are all on Education Health Care Plans (EHCPs). Both SEN Teachers & Support staff are supportive, accommodating and welcoming. Pupils respond well to genuine, consistent, resilient & empathetic staff who are able to build a strong rapport with them. Class sizes are small (typically 5 - 8 pupils per class) and the young people are aged between primary and secondary levels.
Due to expansion and increased students on roll, a new and exciting opportunity has arisen for an SEN Teaching Assistant (SEN TA) who has worked with children with behavioural needs.

Your Youth Worker / SEN TA/ Teaching Assistant/ HLTA/ Behaviour Mentor/ Mentor / Child Support Worker/ Child Residential Worker experience must have been obtained in either an SEN School/ mainstream school/ Youth centre/ College/ Alternative Provision or Pupil Referral Unit.
