Our SEND schools and SEND provisions are always looking for outgoing and confident Teaching assistants who have experience within a SEND/or child care setting and are passionate working with pupils who have additional needs, particularly supporting students with Hearing Impairment. It's vital for schools to find the most suitable candidate for their students to ensure that levels of attainment are being met accordingly and they have the ability support the student's individual needs accordingly.

You must hold:

• Level 1, 2 or 3 in British Sign language
• Must have a current DBS
• Experience working with students with Hearing impairment.
• Passion for working with Special Educational Needs

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. Experience with children and young adults that have PMLD, SLD, ASD & MLD would be preferable.

Other experience & qualifications desirable:

• Team Teach/MAPA qualified
