Job description
Behaviour & Inclusion Support Workers - Wakefield - Immediate Start

We are currently looking for a Support Worker to work in specialist setting based in Wakefield. This schools provides an education for students who can't go to a mainstream school, because of exclusion, illness or other reasons and would not otherwise receive suitable education. The particular groups you are working with will be KS2, KS3 and KS4 children and young people. They have modern facilites all geared to enhance and enrich the students experience.

You will ideally hold a Team Teach certification or be prepared to train for one and have a passion for working with young people aged 8-19. The work can be very rewarding; however it can also be challenging too, so you need to be resilient, clam, composed and have the ability to manage challenging behaviour in the school. Many students have challenging home lives and have complex communication needs, learning difficulties or are autistic and some occasionally present with some challenging behaviours. We offer in-house training for Team Teach with a course running in late July.

Protocol Education has been placing teaching professionals in a range of settings for many years. We are a REC accredited and audited company, this means we really take safeguarding seriously and are a leading fully compliant provider within the education sector. We have a large office network that stretches from the North East to the South West and most areas in-between.

Protocol Education adheres to the following from its Support Workers;

• A DBS certificate with a live subscription to the update service or be willing to get one
• Two professional references within the last three years
• Someone who is committed to the safeguarding of young people
