Are you looking for your next role supporting children in Primary School with their Social, emotional and mental health?

Are you a motivational and inspiring person who people can open up to and relate to?

Protocol Education work with a large range of Primary Schools in the London Borough of Wandsworth and Lambeth and we anticipate there being a big need for TAs like yourselves ASAP.

Many Primary students have returned in September for the first time in almost 6 months; with such a long period of absence come many concerns and anxiety for students. Whilst some students may quickly adapt to returning, others will struggle with separation anxiety from their parents and anxiety about catching up with work. Furthermore, many students will have suffered a bereavement as a result of COVID which is likely to have a knock-on effect in their school life.

Your job will be to nurture these young students by focusing on their social, emotional and mental health. Without being in the right frame of mind, these young students will struggle to focus on their school and work and fall further behind academically. Therefore, your support is vital.

You will be;

• A positive and inspiring role model who can quickly develop rapport with students
• A resilient individual who is dedicated to helping every student you work with
• Confident in dealing with challenging and potentially challenging behaviour
• A calming presence who students feel comfortable around

The ideal candidate will also;

• Prior experience working with students with SEMH
• Prior experience working in a Primary School
• A degree relating to childcare or Psychology (not essential)
• Fully DBS checked (on the update service) or willing to undergo

Protocol Education have established relationships with many Primary Schools in Wandsworth and Lambeth and will do our best to find you the perfect school which meets all of your requirements.
