      Special Needs Teaching Assistant

      • Wandsworth, London
      • Primary Support
      • Permanent

      Are you a passionate individual, looking to work with SEN pupils and support them to overcome barriers to education such as Anxiety and Mental Health? This vacancy is open to Students, Graduates, Healthcare Workers, Support Workers, Counsellors, Youth Workers, Teaching Assistants, Learning Support Assistants, and those with personal experience of managing Autism, Mental Health and Challenging Behaviour. If so, apply to work with us today!

      We are actively recruiting for several long-term teaching assistant positions available at one of our partner schools local to Wandsworth. The school will be hoping to take the successful candidates onto a permanent contract, following an introductory period with Vision Teaching. Together with the education provider, we are seeking keen and motivated individuals, who are willing to get ‘stuck in’ from the get-go. If you are looking to begin or continue their career within the education sector, this could be the school for you!

      If successful, you will be working with pupils between the ages of 5-11 years as part of a very supportive and welcoming team who work hard to encourage and support the learning and development of pupils in their school. We have recently had a few members of staff start work at the school, all say how friendly and welcoming the team were! The pupils you will work with all have either SEMH and/or autism, which means you will need to manage very challenging and disruptive behaviours on a regular basis. Class sizes are much smaller than the rest of the school and ratios of support staff to pupils are high – due to the needs and requirements outlined on each pupil’s EHCP. No two days will be the same at work; one day you could be working 1:1 and the next in a class of 5-8 pupils with different needs and abilities.

      When you apply with Vision Teaching, you don’t just get a job, you become part of our community!
