Job description
We are seeking to appointlevel 2 teaching assistants. This will be on a fixed term contract and due to commence as soon as possible.

The posts will be for 32.5 hrs per week term time only: Monday - Friday

Reporting directly to the class teacher, we are looking for candidates who are positive, are energetic, have a passion for working with learners with severe and persistent challenging behaviour and have a can-do attitude. Crucially, we are looking for candidates who understand their impact and are able to raise the levels of optimism, positive behaviour and energy in the learner by implementing and following a bespoke timetable.

The successful candidates will need to demonstrate a good understanding of and have experience of supporting pupils with different needs as well as excellent communication skills and the desire to learn and grow within the role.

All teaching assistants at Penmaes support the class teachers and support the learning and well-being of individual pupils or groups; they may provide appropriate care for those who are personally dependent on adults for their basic needs. This may include meeting their toileting needs with associated moving and handling.

The post requires a committed and flexible approach as the wellbeing of all our pupils is highly important.
