***GBP55-60 per day
***Graduate only - ideally Psychology - 2:1 min

My client school, based to the west of Birmingham, is actively recruiting two Teaching Assistants to support pupils with special educational needs. The role is a full time permanent position during term time so candidates need to be able to commit to this before they consider applying.

The school is a primary of below average size. Based in Birmingham, the school is home to pupils from wide ranging back grounds as well as a mix of socio economic classes. The percentage of pupils with English not as their first language is above the national average. Pupils at the school have a number of special educational needs including - dyslexia, Autism as well as extending to issues such as low self-esteem, anger management problems or school phobia/refusal.

Because there is such a varied range of barriers to learning experienced by the school's pupils, the type of support that a Teaching Assistant provides is very much dependent on the individual needs of the student.

As a Teaching Assistant, you will work across Key stages 1 & 2 in a variety of subjects. At times, you will support the whole class whilst at other times you will be supporting pupils on a one-to-one basis. You will also be responding to the instruction of the school's SENCO who will guide you in positively enhancing an individual child's educational needs.

If this sounds like the type of school you'd like to work with and are committed to a career in education, then please email a copy of your CV to Patrick at Edustaff today.
