Due to increased student role & work load, this new post has been made available. Essentially as a SEN TA (Special Education Needs Teaching Assistant ) you will be working with pupils in small groups & on a 1:1 basis. The successful SEN TA will either have been in a similar post or a Learning Mentor, Behaviour Mentor/ LSA/ HLTA / Teaching Assistant /Youth Worker (ie EBD, SEMH, ASD, ADHD etc).
As an SEN TA/ Behaviour Mentor/ LSA/ HLTA / Teaching Assistant /Youth Worker you will be resilient, empathetic, firm but fair, dedicated and can build a strong rapport with the your pupils and get them on task. Essentially you will be a resilient individual who can deal with challenging behaviour and doesn’t take things to heart. Would be beneficial if you have had de-escalation training OR behaviour training but not essential.
