job description

Are you a qualified Teaching Assistant? Do you have a passion for working with children with special needs in a supportive environment? Are you looking for a school that has wonderful, supportive staff?

We are regularly looking to recruit teaching assistants with experience of working within special needs to work in our primary and secondary schools within the Flintshire areas.

This is to work within mainstream primary and secondary environments, and is on a supply basis.

Special needs teaching assistants support students with special educational needs (SEN) in the classroom as directed by the class teacher in order to help pupils succeed with their learning. SEN teaching assistants can work in a variety of settings including special schools, specialised units attached to a mainstream school or mainstream classrooms working with individual pupils.

The work of a special needs teaching assistant can vary greatly depending on where they are working and the individual needs of the pupils. Responsibilities 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 a Class teacher;
* helping pupils increase their confidence, self-esteem and independence;
*helping pupils who have difficulty communicating with others, including those whose first language is not English.

In return the benefits to you include:
* excellent rates of pay with no hidden deductions
* dedicated consultant with a 24hr on call facility.
* generous refer a friend scheme
* periodical pay reviews
* access to Randstad Education's Online CPD portfolio.

There may be requirements in some schools for special needs teaching assistants to have additional training and qualifications in specific areas such as sign language for pupils with hearing impairments. If this sounds like the role for you, then apply today!
