Job description
SEN Teaching Assistant with BSL Level 1 or Level 2

Special Needs Teaching Assistant required in and around the Barking and Dagenham area to work in an ARP attatched to a Primary School.

We are looking for SEN Teaching Assistants with excellent communication, literacy and numeracy skills and the ability to deal with challenging behaviour. You will be working 1-1 with pupils in an ARP for Deaf children. The ARP caters for deaf children who have a moderate, severe or profound permanent hearing loss in both ears with an associated language delay. The children are supported by a team of Teachers of the Deaf, Education Communication Support Workers and Speech and Language Therapists.

The communication approach in the ARP can be described as Total Communication' and this broadly means that sign language is used simultaneously with spoken English. The range of children's needs within the ARP means that the approach to communication is as individual to each child as possible, with some children only using speech to some children who have British Sign Language as their first language. The majority of children use speech to communicate, with as much sign language as they need to support their communication and learning.

Previous classroom based experience is essential.

Candidates must be:
•Enthusiastic
•Fun
•Committed
•Resilient
•Interest in working with children

We can offer:
•Supportive and friendly team of staff
•Opportunities for professional development
