We are seeking a EYFS Special Needs Teaching Assistant  to work within a small group of children working within continuous provision at below the level expected for their age. These children have complex special educational and medical needs, and in some cases disabilities which means they require additional adult support. Some children are pre verbal and some older children within this setting are non verbal.

We are ideally seeking a positive, reliable and dedicated member of staff with patience and a sense of fun for this EYFS Special Needs Teaching Assistant  role.

This setting is well equipped, run and resourced. We expect that this is to be a long term assignment with the potential to go permanent for the right candidate if considered a success. This role is within a specialist school setting not a mainstream school.

Skills in Makaton, PECs and AAC would be required for this post unless the candidate can prove that they meet all other criteria and are likely to familiarise themselves with these communication systems rapidly (Vision offer FREE training to qualifying candidates, including Team Teach training).

It is vital that you work as an effective team member to meet the needs of the child, advance and facilitate their learning. This is a full time, 5 day EYFS Special Needs Teaching Assistant role Monday to Friday through Vision for Education.
