About the Role
Are you looking to start a career in education? Do you want to make an invaluable difference to young people with special educational needs?
If so, we have an exciting opportunity for a Teaching Assistant to join our supportive environment at Wetheringsett Manor School.
As a TA, you will be responsible for safeguarding the young people and making sure they are healthy, safe and as comfortable as possible.
You will assist in their learning by offering companionship and support, whilst ensuring their physical, mental and emotional needs are met.
You will be required to prepare learning materials under the supervision of the teachers and to participate in learning activities.
The TA will also be required to liaise with parents and staff with regards to the wellbeing of the young people.
This role involves working with young people who have complex behaviour associated with their learning needs. You will be trained to deescalate these situations and put in place pro-active strategies to avoid similar situations in future.
