I'm currently looking to recruit a graduate - ideally in psychology or special educational needs - with a 2:1 or 1st class degree to join a primary school, from November, as a Graduate SEN Teaching Assistant.

This position is to work with the school's pupils in KS1 who have special educational needs, language barriers or are falling behind their peers. Pupils in this primary school have a range of needs including ADHD, Autism, Asperger's, Dyslexia and speech and language difficulties. You job will be to work closely with these pupils to ensure they are managing their studies whilst providing emotional and academic support.

You will be working closely with the school's teachers and leadership to ensure that pupils are receiving the most appropriate interventions and support for their needs. As an SEN Teaching Assistant, there will be a demand for whole class support but more often than not you will be working with small groups and pupils on a one-to-one basis.

The school is a relatively small primary academy with just one form in every year group. The school has a reputation for offering an inclusive approach to education where the wellbeing and progress of every child is important.

If you feel you have the necessary skills and experience, teamed with a caring nature and a desire to make a real difference then please send in a copy of your CV to Patrick at Edustaff to be considered for this Teaching Assistant position.

***Please not only candidates who are successful will be contacted.
