My client, a well-respected primary school in the Hengoed area are currently recruiting for two Teaching Assistants for two long-term roles. The roles will be 25 hrs per week working 5 hours per day Monday – Friday. The successful candidates will be working one to one with either a year 4 male pupil diagnosed with social communications difficulties with a secondary diagnosis of sensory difficulties or alternatively be working with a year 2 female pupil who has been diagnosed with downs syndrome. Both roles will involve working with the class teacher to provide an interactive and nurturing learning environment alongside providing academic and emotional support for the pupils. My client is looking for candidates who are committed, career driven, flexible and versatile with the confidence to work to a plan but also with their own initiative. Due to the nature of these roles and the needs of the pupils you will need to be comfortable providing personal care and it is essential you can commit to these roles until at least July 2022.
To be considered for these positions you will need to have a background working with children or display transferable skills from previous roles, this will be required alongside the passion and confidence to positively impact children’s educational experience. Previous employment working with children with additional learning needs is essential for these roles. Also, any experience of working with downs syndrome or children with sensory difficulties would be looked upon favourably.
If you feel you have the skills and criteria for any of these roles please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
