JOB TITLE / ROLE:
PMLD Secondary TA: Chippenham - Wiltshire - Role: SEND TA Jobs
Are you an experienced TA in PMLD? Axcis want to hear from you! You might come from a care/support background and seek to make the transition into working with children.
Axcis have a vacancy for a teaching assistant at a well respected specialist school on the outskirts of Chippenham working with secondary aged children with PMLD, aged 14. You will be general in class support so you will be working with all the children in your classroom.
Rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, this fantastic specialist school caters for 4-19 year olds with a range of learning and physical disabilities. The school uses a range of innovative teaching methods to help their students make the most of their educational experience. The school has small classes of up 7-10 pupils with a high staff to pupil ratio so you will be supported by other staff at all times. The school has beautiful grounds and a welcoming, supportive atmosphere. Situated on the outskirts of Chippenham, the school is difficult to get to using public transport so drivers will be at an advantage.
The role starts immediately and is five days a week, full time and will go on till the end of this term. The position is general in-class support - you may be expected to work one to one, in small groups or providing general in-class support as required. Experience of working with children with PMLD is essential and you will be expected to do personal care as well as manual handling. Many of the children are non verbal and the ability to use Makaton would be highly advantageous.
If you are a caring, friendly and patient individual then this could be just the kind of role you're looking for. The ideal candidate will be an experienced SEND teaching assistant who has worked with KS3 AND KS4 children with PMLD in a special needs environment. At Axcis, we value our teachers and support staff and the hard work they put in on a daily basis. This is why we always offer competitive rates of pay to ensure that their skills and experience are recognized.
To work for us you will need to have an updated DBS, if your DBS isn't on the update service you will need to pay for a new one which will cost you £50. You will also need to provide a minimum of two references, one from a job/voluntary work where you've worked with children or with people with special needs.
