Job description
ASD/SLD/PMLD Teaching Assistant

We are currently working with an ASD/SLD/PMLD SEN school who are looking to appoint SEN Teaching Assistants for a variety of day-to-day, short term and long term bookings.
Special Needs Teaching Assistants support students with special educational needs (SEN) in the classroom as directed by a SEN teacher in order to help pupils succeed with their learning.
Within an SEN setting the class sizes can be as small as 4/5 pupils and there is a high ratio of LSA support. SLD/PMLD schools have pupils with complex needs, there may be pupils with degenerative illnesses, those who are completely non-verbal and communicate using basic signing tools like Makaton or through a series of lights and clickers. There may be pupils at the high end of the autism spectrum or with Cerebral Palsy. Ability levels can vary considerably. You'll be working with other professionals within the school, e.g. a nurse, physiotherapist, speech and language therapist, etc.
Your duties could include:
• assisting with pupils' physical needs, including hygiene and feeding, as well as assisting with therapy sessions
• helping with pupils' school work under the supervision of an SEN teacher
• helping pupils increase their confidence, self-esteem and independence
• You will be responsible for promoting inclusion, working according to IEPs and advancing learning, allowing the children you will be working with to make positive progress by removing barriers to learning.

Experience of working with specials needs is preferred but not essential. If you feel this could be the role for you then please send your CV to Charlotte.duignan@protocol-education.com or call me on 01895 451 960
