Vision for Education are currently recruiting on behalf of a school in the Sunderland area that caters for students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties. The role will begin on a supply basis but will be made permanent for the candidate that can display all of the qualities the school are looking for over a sustained period.
Previous experience of working as a Teaching Assistant is not essential but the ability to engage, motivate and inspire some of the regions most disaffected young learners is.
The ideal candidate must have:
- The patience to deal with very challenging, sometimes aggressive behaviour, in a calm and collected manner
- The ability to respond to behaviours with a non-judgmental attitude and begin each day as a fresh start
- The resilience and empathy to look for the reasons behind the challenging behaviour you encounter
- Ability to maintain a professional working relationship with students and follow current safeguarding guidelines
You must have, or be willing to undergo, an enhanced DBS check. Full assistance can be provided.
