Job description:

We are recruiting for a passionate teaching assistant in Dudley to work in a great SEND school starting as soon as possible.

The applicant should have experience working with primary-secondary students with physical and learning difficulties as well as being able to assist with personal care. The daily role of the teaching assistant will be focused on the student’s personal development and enabling them to be active participants in their communities. As mentioned, the role does require personal care such as feeding and changing therefore experience will be necessary.

This is a worthwhile and rewarding role for the right candidate.

The teaching assistant will be promoting their independence by working on a 1:1 basis as well as group sessions and help with their learning. Due to the student’s disabilities there will be occasions when the teaching assistants will be required to assist the students with their hydrotherapy sessions.
