Job Description

Teaching Assistant (SEN) – Tunbridge Wells



£82.50 Daily Rate

We work with a welcoming school who provide pupils with opportunities to achieve and celebrate their progress. They support, challenge and motivate their pupils to succeed. This amazing school wants their TAs to be part of the decision making that drives the school, provides outcomes for children and advocates for every child. They welcome their input in developing both the academic curriculum and the opportunities in their extra-curricular offer – bringing their own interests and passions to the table.
In the life of a TA no two days are the same and that no two children are the same either. The children require very special adults who can support students with complex and challenging behaviours.
They will know that the children require lots of attention, just the right sort of communication, consistency and flexibility in equal measure, and a non-judgemental approach. They need to be resilient, persistent and solution focussed to meet the needs of the students and to do so they need to wear a lot of hats and be prepared to change them at a moment’s notice!
The Role:
• supporting teachers in the classroom
• working with children 1:1 or delivering sessions with small groups of students
• managing classroom resources
• taking children on trips and visits

• making amazing displays
• celebrating success
• part of therapy sessions or reflecting on difficult periods
