Are you a Level 3 Qualified Teaching Assistant who has experience working with SEMH students or within Pupil Referral Units?

ABC Teachers are looking for candidates with previous experience who are available to work various days to cover the supply needs of a number of SEND schools in Derbyshire. There is the opportunity for day to day work which can be flexible to your needs and longer term placements as well.

The schools we are partnered with deal with a range of behavioural difficulties and pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health issues.

Due to the range of schools we work with, you must be comfortable dealing with challenging behaviour and be able to adapt to various special needs, remaining calm and empathetic throughout.

In order to be considered for interview you must be able to provide previous referenceable experience (within 2 years) of working with special needs children, ideally in a school setting. You must have excellent communication skills when speaking to teachers and other staff and will be able to remain calm and approachable while demonstrating a professional manor. In addition we require you to have a level 2 qualification as a minimum.

Experience in some form of deescalation training (Team Teach, etc) would be desirable.
