The work may be with small groups, 1:1 or within the classroom and the schools’ SEMH provisions. This role is from September 2024 for one year, due to funding.

Applicants should be enthusiastic, patient, demonstrate flexibility, initiative and excellent communication skills, be a team player and have strong empathy skills. Previous experience in a similar role is desirable but not essential as training will be provided.
