This job is no longer available
Randstad Education are looking for an enthusiastic, outgoing, confident and experienced support worker / teaching assistant to work within challenging SEN / referral units within Derbyshire on a temporary basis.
Candidates that have previous experience working with children with challenging behaviour would be an advantage, whether within a classroom environment or at alternative provisions such as activity centres, summer camps etc.
The positions will require the successful candidate to travel between locations, therefore you must be a driver with your own transport (all expenses will be reimbursed)
The children within these environments are aged between 14 and 16 and are no longer within mainstream education, mostly due to behaviour issues due to an array of special needs. Randstad are working in partnership with this client to cover a long term sickness for the duration of 2 to 3 months to start from Monday 20th January. Behaviour management and de-escalation skills will be a huge part of the role as well as aiming to engage the students into learning within an alternative education environment.
If you have similar experience and want to get into education and this sounds like the ideal opportunity please call Wendy as soon as possible ON 0115 950 6200. Become part of a team where you can make a real difference to a young persons future.
