Teaching Assistant - Behaviour / SEMH / SEND
Your new company
Are you an experienced Teaching Assistant with an up to date Team Teach training certificate? Do you feel confident support students who display challenging behaviours?
I am working in partnership with a number of Pupil Referral Units and Alternative Provisions in Croydon who require Teaching Assistants to work with students who struggle to access mainstream education. These students often display very challenging behaviour and have Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. Short term, long term and permanent opportunities available.
Your new role
In this role, you will be required to support students who may be disengaged from education. You will build and maintain positive relationships with students to encourage learning and development. You will model and promote appropriate behaviour around school and challenge any behaviour that is not deemed to be appropriate.
What you'll need to succeed
For this role, you will have experience of working with children and young people in some capacity such as a school, residential care, youth club or sports club. You will have an interest in working with challenging, vulnerable or at risk young people and be passionate about making a difference. You will ideally have an in date Team Teach training certificate or have completed other de-escalation/restraint training.
What you'll get in return
This role offers you the opportunity to work in a challenging yet rewarding role supporting young people with additional needs. You will also receive a competitive rate of pay, holiday accrual, and a dedicated consultant. As a member of our team you will also receive access to 20+ wellbeing courses (including yoga and prioritisation), a comprehensive Safeguarding and Child Protection training package, as well as additional CPD courses such as Behaviour Management and Mastering Microsoft Teams.
