A London based PRU are looking for a One to One Teaching Assistant/Learning Mentor to support a child with SEMH.

Provision based in Islington with the role starting as soon as possible.

The School

The School is a Pupil Referral Unit for students aged between 11 and 16 who have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or a Statement of Special Educational Need (SSEN). In most cases the primary identified need is Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) and behavioural difficulties, although the majority of students have additional special educational needs such as autistic spectrum condition, AD(H)D, speech, language and communication difficulties, opposition defiance and attachment disorders.

The Role

The successful candidate will be required to work between 08:30 - 15:30 from Monday - Friday. You will be working with the school on a temporary contract, with the potential opportunity for this to turn permanent. You will be required to support a student in Key Stage 4 with Behavioural Difficulties. With the support of the Teachers and Senior Leadership team you will implement a behavior plan focusing on positive behaviour, responsibility and setting personal goals with the student. You will be resilient and with a real passion for guiding vulnerable students towards a better path.

The Chosen Candidate

Due to the needs of the students, the school are looking for someone who has experience working with young people, especially those of supporting young people with Challenging Behaviour and Complex Needs. Team Teach training is not essential, but preferable.
