Job description
Behaviour Support Teaching Assistant.

Protocol Education have recently started working with a newly founded SEMH school in the Sunderland area with children who have Social, Emotional and Mental health needs and autism. The school we are recruiting for is a popular SEMH School whose pupils range from 5-16 years old with a very supportive staffing team in place. The successful candidate will have a resilient, empathetic and patient personality with the desire to help children fulfil their potential. The role would involve a combination of 1:1 support and general classroom support.

As a Teaching Assistant, you have to be understanding and committed. That's because the young people in the school we are representing have social, emotional, mental health and complex learning needs that call for extra dedication. . It's not just about academic achievement; we want you to make them feel accepted and confident in their abilities.
Help them progress and you'll have every opportunity to do the same with your career.

This role is fixed term and to cover Maternity leave:

• 5 days a week, term time only
• 8:30am-4:30pm
• Based near Sunderland Town Centre
• Working 1:1 with pupils who have challenging behaviour
• Working from March 2019 until November 2019

You must have:

• At least 1 year of working with autism and challenging behaviour
• You must be confident with the SEN code of practice
• An understanding of SEMH and Mental Health
• Level 2/ Level 3 Supporting Teaching and Learning.
• Experience of supporting pupils of a Primary or Secondary age
but what we're really looking for is the ability to connect.

We need you to build great relationships with the young people, so you can motivate them do well and be the best that they can be. If you're emotionally strong and good in a team, we can offer a role with exciting prospects. There are occasional meetings outside school hours, which your attendance will be required.

In return you will receive:

• A competitive pay package
• Opportunity to work in a vibrant and inspiring environment
• A personal consultant who will stay in touch throughout your placement
• CPD (continual professional development)

If you have these qualities and would like to work with Protocol, please submit your CV to as soon as possible to ensure you are short listed or call 0191 279 7270.

We look forward to hearing from you!
