Are you looking to make a difference to the lives young people with severe, complex and moderate learning difficulties and disabilities? Would you like to be part of a community and build your career within a school that is passionate about every individual person as well as their families?  Then you could be exactly the person we are looking for.

Due to recent growth and expansion, several exciting opportunities have arisen for enthusiastic and motivated Teaching Assistants to provide reliable and consistent support for the class teacher whilst playing a key role in supporting the whole class.   

We are an independent residential special school and college for students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) including severe and moderate learning difficulties, autism and complex needs. We provide education and care within a beautiful and spacious natural environment where all staff work together to make a real and positive difference in the lives of our students. Ideally you will have previous relevant work experience and/or qualifications, and demonstrable capacity to support learning activities and progress for our young people.

Working with our students aged 6 to 19 years who have varied learning needs and often quite complex support needs, you’ll be assisting our teachers and other colleagues to deliver learning programmes; both in the classroom and the community. Typically, your role will be to support the class teacher to deliver specific curriculum sessions, working on a 1-1 basis helping students in their small class group, attending to their learning and physical needs including therapy programmes.

Applicants should be good communicators, empathetic, creative and passionate about education.  You bring the motivation and we will provide a position which offers fulfilment, plus a fantastic range of training.

Applications are also welcome for bank/casual hours in the same area of work.
