Experienced Mental Health Support Assistant - Reading - Makaton/Team Teach/PECS - Education +Training - Experienced SEN Teaching Assistant

  • Do you have the compassion, resilience, and experience to elevate the learning of SEN students through SEMH and academic support?
  • Have you got a degree or Level 3 in a relevant field, and are ready to apply your learning in a way that directly benefits the lives of young people with Complex Needs?
  • Are you trained in Makaton, Team Teach, or PECS?

Experienced SEN Teaching Assistant - Level 3/Degree graduates wanted!

This is a fantastic opportunity for a candidate with a Level 3 or a higher than a 2:2 degree to join a highly prestigious 11-18 specialist academy in Reading as a SEN Teaching Assistant. The head teacher has asked me to stress that experience is pivotal for this role, and that if the successful SEN Teaching Assistant is experienced enough, there is the option of coming in as a Higher Learning SEN Teaching Assistant. The students all have a primary diagnosis of Autism, but often come paired with a secondary diagnosis of conditions such as ADHD, OCD, or other cognitive disorders. You will have the opportunity to shadow specialist therapists across a range of dsiciplines

Experience working in a school setting is a must, though it does not necessarily have to be with SEN, as the academy are looking for someone to hit the ground running. Previous training in Makaton, Team Teach, or PECS is highly desirable, but there will be the option for training should your experience be of equal strength.

The role:

  • Experienced SEN Teaching Assistant.
  • KS3-5 students with Complex Needs.
  • Makaton/Team Teach/Pecs highly desirable.
  • Autism, ADHD, Cognitive Disorders, Physical Disabilities, and Challenging Behaviour.
