We have full-time Special Needs Teaching Assistant opportunities in specialist schools supporting children and young people with a range of learning and development needs including Autism, PMLD and Behavioural Needs (SEMH).

 

Autism

As a teaching Assistant in a specialist school for students with Autism, you will be supporting students across a range of learning and development activities. Students with autism can vary significantly on their cognitive ability and so an adaptable and confident attitude is essential.  You will need to be able to build relationships quickly, establish routines with a consistent approach and communicate clearly in suitable ways and integrate pupil's interests.

 

PMLD (Profound Multiple Learning Difficulties)

When working with students with PMLD, your role will combine personal care support including feeding and physical support alongside supporting developmental activities. Most of the children you will be supporting will be non-verbal, unable to walk unaided with  multiple disabilities/complex health needs, This is an excellent option for those with previous experience supporting children or adults in a care setting. PMLD schools are experts in supporting children with these needs and this is an excellent opportunity to learn and develop your skills and experience.

 

Behavioural Needs (SEMH)

Schools for students with behavioural and Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs provide a nurturing and supportive learning environment that is adaptable to meet each student’s needs. As a teaching assistant you will support students to develop their day to day and academic skills as well as build their self-esteem and regulate emotions. Students can display challenging behaviour and staff are provided with training to manage and de-escalate situations. This role is ideal for those that truly want to make a difference and support young people to a healthy and happy future.
