Part Time
Secondary school in Wigan requiring a SEND Teaching Assistant to start immediately on a long term basis.

Your new company
A secondary school on the outskirts of Wigan has approached Hays seeking a SEND Teaching Assistant to work closely with Year 7 pupils. This particular school has a number of SEN and Keyworker pupils attending school and therefore they require additional support to help with remote learning, ensuring pupils have the relevant support. This school is based on the outskirts of Wigan, therefore accessible via both the M6 and East Lancs Road. Having worked with the school for a number of years, we have always received excellent feedback with staff commenting on the good behaviour of pupils, as well as the supportive and welcoming nature of staff.

Your new role
Joining the school as soon as possible, you will work closely with the Year 7 class teacher both in class and when they are teaching remotely and your overall responsibility will be to ensure that pupils are fully supported throughout lessons. Responsibilities will include ensuring pupils are completing the required work set by the class teacher, ensuring they are kept on task throughout lessons and ensuring that all behaviour is appropriate. Within this role you will likely work both 1:1 and in small groups, sometimes when the class teacher is teaching remotely. Once schools re-open you will be required to specifically support SEND pupils.

What you'll need to succeed
In order to be successful in securing this position, you must possess previous Teaching Assistant experience, having previously worked in a secondary setting, as well as having also worked with SEND pupils. You will be available to start immediately and likely continue through until the end of the academic year if required.

What you'll get in return
In return, you will be paid a highly competitive daily rate and will further develop your own skills and experience as will be supporting both 1:1 and in groups, as well as working independently when the class teacher is working remotely. You will have a dedicated Hays Consultant who will support you and you will also join our Hays Refer a Friend Scheme where you could be entitled to receiving £250 in high street vouchers.
