Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant

Primary Schools Across Derby

Full Time Role

I have multiple schools across the Derby area that will have a late intake of pupils with SEND needs.

The roles really do vary, from children who are on the Autistic spectrum, to children that have more physical needs and may require some personal care or even maybe manual handling.

You must have experience working with children who have special needs or have experience with children with challenging behaviour.

All applicants must be NVQ Level 2/3 qualified or equivalent and have a minimum of 6 months experience in a similar role.

You must have sound knowledge of working in a variety of roles with children with special needs as this role will require the successful candidates to be very flexible.

You must be passionate about bringing the best outcome for the child you will be working with and above all understanding of the Childs individual needs. You must have very strong communication skills and work very closely with the class teacher and parents to ensure that the child makes progress both socially and academically each week.
