I am currently recruiting for Teaching Assistants to work with pupils that have Profound and multiple learning disabilities / Severe Learning Difficulties.

An important part of your role will be to work alongside skilled staff and students working together in pleasant surroundings with excellent facilities. You will be working either 1:1 or 2:1 with the students so you will need to be able to quickly build rapport with them and other students. As lots of these students are in wheelchairs it would be very desirable if you have moving & handling training / Team Teach.
