Caring, compassionate, engaging. Are these words that describe you? If so, we need to hear from you!

Zest is working with a school in the South of Redditch who are looking for a Teaching Assistant with a hands-on attitude to join their growing team. The role is on a full-time basis, working 1:1 with a child in KS1 and is due to start in April on a long-term, ongoing basis.

The school has a friendly atmosphere, priding itself on its caring environment and the supportive partnerships they hold. The purposeful, stimulating curriculum takes into consideration the differing needs and abilities of all children, meaning they can all make good progression at their own pace. They utilise the indoor and outdoor space they have well to provide excellent learning opportunities, fit for all types of learners.

The role will require you to be working with a child in key stage one who has autism. The child will need someone energetic with the ability to cater learning to his interests to keep him engaged and on task. Learning tasks will be given in short bursts, with regular breaks to help with regulating emotions and to reduce cognitive overload.

If you are a patient and understanding individual, we would love to hear from you.
