The successful candidates need to have previous experience of working with SEN students and have a strong desire of getting involved in every aspect of the school.

Other experience & qualifications desirable:

• Team Teach/MAPA qualified

• Positive handling

Guaranteed Worker Pay - (GWP)

Looking for a bit of job security, but unsure about committing to a role sight unseen? A Guaranteed Work Agreement (GWA) could be for you.

the perfect balance. It’s a simple solution: we’ll guarantee you a set number of days of supply work per term, in return for your exclusive

commitment to Protocol Education for the duration of the agreement. Easy!
