Ideally we are looking for someone with a relevant qualification and/or experience of supporting and understanding the learning needs of children, and able to actively contribute to their learning, personal and social needs, while encouraging independence. Key duties will include advancing learning of identified students in a range of settings including working 1:1 and supporting within class. A positive and flexible approach is essential.
