SEN Teaching Assistant - SEMH

  • SEMH Teaching Assistant
  • All Boys Secondary School
  • Key Stage 4
  • London Borough of Camden
  • Full Time Position
  • Long Term Contract
  • Start ASAP

The School

Based in the heart of Camden, this 'good' rated school caters for boys aged 11-16 with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs (SEMH) or who have been excluded from mainstream education. The school is based across 2 sites, split into a KS3 pupil referral unit and a KS4 pupil referral unit, with both sites housing a division for students with SEMH.

The Role

This fantastic Camden school is looking for a teaching assistant to work 1:1 with students at key stage 4 who may require additional support in their lessons. You would be assisting the subject teacher in a class of up to 8 students. The students will be following a curriculum of English, Maths, ICT, Science and Personal and Social Development (PSD) in addition to being offered a range of vocational and non-vocational subjects. At this level, the pupils are working below the national average and so you would need to be supportive, energetic and enthusiastic in order to help the students reach their potential.

The Candidate

As a member of support staff, you would need to motivate students, boost self-esteem and promote the social and personal development in pupils around the school. The successful candidate must display excellent communication and interpersonal skills in order to work effectively with students, teachers, parents/carers and other support staff, and having a good sense of humour would be beneficial. Prior experience in working with children with challenging or disruptive behaviour would be desirable although the school does train all staff in de-escalation techniques and Team Teach.
