Do you have experience of supporting pupils with Social, Emotional or Mental Health needs? Are you confident in working with children with anxiety, attachment disorders, ASD, ADHD, or other comorbid conditions? Have you ever had experience with MAPA, PRICE, or Team Teach?

We provide staff to schools across the area who are looking for staff just like you!

You'll take initiative, be resilient, and drive pupils to achieve and progress. You'll work on learning activities, promote confidence, and encourage pupils to act independently to succeed.

You'll Be…
  • A Qualified Teaching Assistant with experience of young people with mental health needs, SEMH, autism, ADHD, or other disabilities and needs
  • Experienced working with secondary aged pupils across Key Stage Three (KS3) and Key Stage Four (KS4)
  • Able to hold student attention and focus with excellent communication skills
  • Promote happiness, self-reliance and encourage positive interactions

We're… Academics!

  • Generous rates of pay
  • A dedicated SEN Consultant

  • 'A warm, friendly, but professional service'
  • 'I have worked for several teaching agencies in the past, but this is the first time that I have felt like 'more than just a number'
