You will need to be a good communicator, positive, calm and willing to work as part of our team. The successful candidate will be based at John Jamieson but could be asked to work at any site across the SILC. This is a permanent position subject to a 6-month probationary period, to start as soon as possible.

What the school offers its staff

The East SILC has a progressive staffing structure which is supported by Continual Professional Development; a thorough induction process is in place.

Further details about the role

The East Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre (SILC) is a 2-19 generic special school with 426 pupils on roll. All our pupils have special learning needs and some have physical/ medical difficulties. The East SILC is a complex organisation which operates on a variety of sites to provide a range of outreach services across the city, including partnerships with primary and secondary providers, the city-wide Physical Difficulties and Medical Service including a moving and handling service, as well as the Medical Needs Teaching Service for Leeds.

An opportunity has arisen for the appointment of a Level 3 Support Worker to join the Behaviour team at the East SILC John Jamieson School. We require a skilled person who has experience working with vulnerable pupils with complex behavioural needs. The role will involve working with pupils in class, delivering interventions to small groups and supporting our BSW with the organisation of systems across the site.

This is a full time, permanent position and candidates must have an NVQ Level 3 in Teaching and Learning or an equivalent qualification. A visit to the school is strongly recommended.
