Hays Education are working with an Ofsted 'Outstanding' 11 - 16 Secondary school in Leicester, who are seeking Teaching Assistants to start as soon as possible. These are full time and long-term positions with the potential to become permanent for the right candidate.

Your responsibilities

This is a mainstream Secondary school, but the role will involve supporting students with additional needs including Moderate Learning Difficulties, Autism and behavioural difficulties on a 1:1 and/or small group basis. You will assist the Teacher in the management of students, resources and the classroom environment. Work may be carried out in the classroom or outside the main teaching area. You will establish constructive relationships with students and interact with them according to individual needs. You will operate within legal parameters as described in the school's policies and procedures.

What you'll need to succeed

For this role, you will have recent experience of working in a school setting and ideally have supported students with Special Educational Needs. You will have an interest in working with challenging, vulnerable or at risk young people and be passionate about making a difference. You will also be able to work as part of a team to best meet the needs of pupils. You will ideally hold a Teaching Assistant (or equivalent) qualification but this is not essential.
