A number of schools in Telford require Qualified Teaching assistants for supply based roles for day to day and potential long term cover in SEN schools.
ABC Teachers, an award winning recruitment agency owned by TES, are currently recruiting passionate and hardworking Teaching Assistants to work within the Special Educational Needs department of a number of schools located in Telford and the surrounding areas. The Schools cater for Students with a range of differing SEN issues and contain pupils aged between 6 and 16 years old and provides a challenging, exciting and rewarding environment to work within.
Due to the role being centred within a Sen setting, it is important to show you have experience dealing with a variety of Special needs. This will ideally be within a Sen school but long term proven experience outside of a school will be considered.
As part of the job you will be assisting the class teacher as well as working alongside other Teaching Assistants on a 1:1 basis as well as in a group setting. The ideal candidate will have experience of working within a similar role. The role can vary from day to day so flexibility and a sound Sen knowledge is vital. Occasionally permanent positions do become available although this cannot be guaranteed.
Our clients are extremely passionate and offer very friendly and supportive environments to work within.
