REESON Education are working closely with a successful, OFSTED 'Outstanding' Primary School located in the Borough of Lambeth. The school are looking for a BSL (British Sign Language) Teaching Assistant to join their team for a 6 month contract commencing ASAP.

The school is well connected by public transport, making it easily commutable from a variety of London locations. For applicants who prefer to drive, there may be the option of on-site parking.

Applicants must be British Sign Language qualified, with the minimum accepted certification being Level 2. The ideal candidate will also have experience supporting pupils aged between 4 - 11 who use British Sign Language within an education setting; however applications from other backgrounds will also be considered.

The role will be supporting a KS1 pupil on a 1-1 basis throughout the school day. You will be responsible for keeping the child engaged, on task and assisting with any translation or communication issues that may arise. The child has an EHCP which will be closely followed and stipulates the importance of having Level 2 BSL (British Sign Language) support available at school.

The role will be a fixed term contract via our agency until the end of the academic year in July. The daily rate of pay will be negotiable based on experience.

If you hold a Level 2 Certificate in British Sign Language, and have experience supporting young people in the deaf community, please contact Amy at REESON Education today. Paid trial days can be set up for successful candidates immediately.
