Are you an experienced Teaching Assistant who has supported children with additional needs, including autism, on a 1:1 basis? I am working with a large, welcoming primary school in Manchester that requires two Teaching Assistants for long-term positions. One TA is to work on a one to one basis with a child in EYFS and the other in Lower Key Stage 2. The children are based full-time in their mainstream classrooms, have social, emotional and communication needs, and require support to help build confidence and engage with their learning environment and peers. The Teaching Assistants need be able to provide plenty of encouragement and be a calm, dependable presence for the children.
I would like to recruit knowledgeable, adaptable SEN Teaching Assistants who can provide excellent support for the children, and help them to make progress in all areas.
