Job Published: 7 months ago
I am currently working alongside a Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) close to the Hartlepool area, who are looking to recruit 2 x Behaviour Support Assistants to join their team from the 25th November

They have a number of children who fall under SEMH (social and emotional mental health)) and need confident and pro-active Learning Support Assistants to work on both a 1:1 and group basis to help improve general class morale and activities. This will be a full time contracted position and your hours will be between 08:30am to 16:00pm Monday-Friday.

You will benefit from inspirational leadership, and the Pupil Referral Unit has also been rated Good' by OFSTED. This is due their dedication to students as well as a focus on Curriculum enrichment, as well as opportunities for pupils to participate in local events and educational trips.

As part of your role you will be taking groups or individual children for targeted interventions and this work may be carried out in the classroom or outside the main teaching area. Your role will be to promote individual students progress, working alongside teaching staff to deliver support programmes, to enable access to learning for pupils.

This is a challenging role and they are looking for people who are up for that challenge and have invested interests in working with and supporting vulnerable children.

Ideally you will have experience of dealing with challenging behaviour and have strategies or training to deal with this is a positive way. Experience of working within an educational setting, with children with ASD/SEMH would be beneficial however transferable skills from other employments and backgrounds will be considered.
