We are currently working with a number of pupil referral units in Bradford and Wakefield, who are looking for experienced behaviour support workers on a temporary basis which could lead to a permanent role. All the pupils have been excluded from mainstream schools due to their behaviour and may present with challenging behaviour or social, emotional and mental health issues.

For this experienced behaviour support assistant role, you will:

• Have experience of working as a behaviour support assistant in a pupil referral unit or similar setting.

• Be a strong minded, resilient individual.

• Have the ability to be inspiring, acting as a role model through encouraging positive behaviour.

• Build trusted relationships with pupils in order to best support their needs.

• Have Team Teach training or willing to do the CPD training.

• Have the ability to adapt your approach using differentiated strategies to encourage pupils to stay on task.
