Newton Aycliffe, County Durham
£83 - £85/day

A SEN Teaching Assistant is needed, for an ongoing role for a school which caters for the needs of autistic students in the Newton Aycliffe area. Experience in supporting children with these needs would be an advantage but is not essential - a willingness to learn and engage with SEN children is the most important quality we are looking for.  Ideally this SEN TEaching Assistant position will require you to have a Teaching Assistant qualification to at least Level 2 but if not another relevant education qualification such as a PGCE or Youth Work qualification is needed. We can provide level 2 TA training if required at a subsidised cost.

Although the role is classed as supply, given the nature of the School, they strongly believe in the students being around the same people, on a consistent basis. Therefore, there is a probability of continued work, year round.

At all times you will, be working with other experienced Teaching Assistants and the class teacher.

  • Have good classroom management skills
  • Have a passion for supporting the learning of pupils 
  • Have excellent subject knowledge
  • Be able to organise themselves and work well within a team
  • Have had previous experience working with ASD pupils

In addition, you must:

• Provide two referees we can contact
