Are you an ambitious SEN teaching assistant, passionate about supporting and encouraging children of all ages and abilities? Are you empathetic and understanding, with experience of supporting children with additional learning needs to develop and grow? Are you looking for your next challenge?

One of our partner schools in Leeds is searching for a compassionate individual with excellent communication skills to join their Early Years team. This is an ongoing contract that has the potential to turn into a permanent position for the right candidate.

Specifically, this position is to support a child with SEN to progress within the early years setting. The desired candidate would have experience completing child observations and possess an understanding of the Early Years statutory framework- but this is not essential.

* Provide 1:1 and small group support
* Encourage and support children to complete work to the best of their ability.
* Work with children to develop their self-esteem
* Support the class teacher in delivering exciting lessons
* Manage children's behaviour throughout the school day

What we need from you:
