Are you experienced working with students with SEN and Behaviour Difficulties? Are you passionate about making a positive difference to student's lives? If so, the following exciting opportunity could be just the right job for you.

Our clients in Halsted are looking for somebody with experience working with challenging behaviour to both support and lead lessons for small groups and also to work with students on a 1:1 basis.

Having visited the school on many occasions and having spent time with some of their students I have always found everybody there to be warm and welcoming. The individual needs of the students are always considered and the extra activities, such as their allotment, help to make learning fun. I really do feel this is a great school to work at, particularly if you are looking to work somewhere where you can help make a difference.

The successful candidate must have the interpersonal skills needed to effectively communicate with staff and students. Previous experience working with Mental Health would also be advantageous.

We are looking for somebody to start on 31 October, initially on a temporary basis with a view to the role becoming permanent for the right candidate.

Although predominately based at the Schools Halsted site, their will be occasions when you are required to visit their Clare site and their allotment, hence a car driver with own transport is required.

This is a great opportunity for an LSA to gain some professional development as the right candidate will be given an opportunity to lead some sessions independently.

Our clients are a small Independent School who combine therapeutic and educational provision to meet individual needs. Most students have multiple and complex requirements including communication, behavioural, emotional and social needs. They were graded as Good in all areas on their last Ofsted Inspection.

The school provides for Students aged 13-17, many of whom have been in and out of Psychiatric units; therefore experience working in this arena would also be advantageous.

Please send your CV to Greg Burns, who is our dedicated SEN Consultant and will be happy to guide you through each step of the process from your application, right up to supporting you throughout your time at the School.
