Have you got what it takes to reach out to some of the most severely challenged pupils attending a pupil referral unit? Are you able to encourage and inspire pupils to stay focused and on task?
We are currently working with a number of pupil referral units around the Wakefield and Leeds area, who are looking for well grounded, strong minded and experienced behaviour support workers to work on a temporary basis. This could lead to a permanent role depending on how committed you are. Every pupil referral unit is different on the types of children that attend. The main reason is for children that have been excluded from mainstream schools, severely challenging behaviour, disengagement to learning, behavioural difficulties and mental health issues. This role requires an individual with a specific skill set.
For this temporary behaviour support assistant role, you will:
• Have at least 6 months experience working in a pupil referral unit or similar setting.
• Liaise with the teacher to support teaching and learning.
• Have the ability to adapt learning activities to encourage pupils to stay on task.
• Use de-escalation strategies such as TEAM TEACH training when any situation occurs.
• Be prepared to act efficiently and in a professional manner.
• Follow the school behaviour policy.
• Record any notes of pupil’s progression in order to present this when liaising with the teacher.
If you are interested in applying for this temporary behaviour support worker role, email your C.V to firstname.lastname@example.org or for more information call Tracey on 0113 246 8220.
Please note: We undertake safeguarding checks on all our workers in accordance with the DfE statutory guidance 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'. As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00.
