Are you passionate about making a difference in the lives of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)? Zest Education is currently recruiting for a dedicated and enthusiastic SEND Teaching Assistant to join a well-established school in Rowley Regis.
This is a full-time position, starting immediately, and requires experience working with students aged between 4-11 who have social, emotional, and mental health (SEMH) needs. The successful candidate will play a vital role in supporting students in their academic, social, and emotional development.
In this role, you will be working in a lovely environment, surrounded by a supportive team of professionals. However, it is important to note that there may be some challenging behavior from the students. As such, experience in managing and de-escalating challenging situations is a must.
Key responsibilities of the role include providing one-on-one support to students, assisting with planning and implementing individualized learning programs, promoting positive behavior management strategies, and fostering a safe and inclusive learning environment.
To be considered for this position, you must have previous experience working with children with SEMH needs. A relevant qualification in Special Education or a related field would be advantageous but is not essential.
If you have a genuine passion for working with children with special needs, possess excellent communication skills, and are committed to making a positive impact in their lives, we would love to hear from you.
If you are interested in this position or want to find out more, email Anthony at firstname.lastname@example.org or ‘apply for job’ at the top of the page to submit your details.
