Job description
Health Care Assistant

A Health care Assistant is required to work in a school in the London borough of Haringey. This role will involve working one to one with a student with SLD (Severe Learning Difficulties) and complex medical needs.

The school caters for children aged between 3-19 years with SLD and complex medical conditions, severe communication disorders, bi-modal sensory impairment and challenging behaviours.

Within this role, the Health care Assistant will be essentially working as a carer for the child who is of nursery age so experience working with nursery age children would be beneficial but not essential.

You must have experience working with Special Needs for this Health Care Assistant role and be willing to undertake any personal care duties such as feeding and changing. The child has specific medical needs so you may be required to undertake training for the role in order to conduct specific medical duties.

Main Duties:

• Supporting students with work set by the class teacher

• Helping with the behaviour management of the classroom

• Working with the teacher to assess pupils levels and ability

• Ensuring the schools ethos and policies are being implemented

• Liaising with parents and carers

The school are looking for individuals who are:

• Experienced working with children

• Experienced working with SEND needs (PMLD, SLD, ASD)

• Passionate about the potential for education and will go that extra mile every day

• Adaptable, and able to work in a challenging setting

• Interested in working in a different environment

• Committed and resilient

If you have Paediatric medical training OR come from a nursing/respite care background, this role would be ideal for you.

Here at Protocol Education, we strive to ensure that each and every candidate has an opportunity to find their ideal job. For a number of years we are proud to have worked alongside fantastic institutions of learning (Primary, Secondary and SEND) to provide them with high quality teachers and support staff.

We undertake safeguarding checks on all our workers in accordance with the DfE statutory guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’. As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00
