Holywell Secondary Team - 0800 731 6872
Capita Education Resourcing (CER) is the first choice for Primary & Secondary schools in Flintshire and the surrounding areas. The demand for SEN /HLTA is so high that we urgently require more.
Special needs teaching assistants support students with special educational needs (SEN) in the classroom as directed by an SEN teacher in order to help pupils succeed with their learning. SEN teaching assistants can work in a variety of settings including special schools, specialised units attached to a mainstream school or mainstream classrooms working with individual pupils.
The work of a special needs teaching assistant can vary greatly depending on where they are working and the individual needs of the pupils. This could include:
*assisting with pupils' physical needs, including hygiene and feeding, as well as assisting with therapy sessions;
*helping with pupils' school work under the supervision of an SEN teacher;
*helping pupils increase their confidence, self-esteem and independence;
*helping pupils who have difficulty communicating with others, including those whose first language is not English.
There may be requirements in some schools for special needs teaching assistants to have additional training and qualifications in specific areas such as sign language for pupils with hearing impairments.
In addition, a certain level of physical fitness may be required to support pupils with physical needs (e.g. helping in physiotherapy sessions or when moving the child).
Sorry, this job is no longer avialable.
