TA Level 1

Ideally the applicant should have recent and relevant experience in a similar role or experience in the pastoral care of young people with SEND in another sector, but this is not essential.

TA Level 3

You will play a crucial role in supporting the academic, social, and emotional development of students with SEND. Working primarily on a 1:1 basis, you will provide tailored assistance to help students overcome barriers to learning and achieve their full potential.

In addition to the responsibilities of a Level 3 TA, the successful candidate will also take an important role in:

  • Deliver 1:1 support to students with SEND, focusing on academic tasks, social integration, and emotional wellbeing.
  • Collaborate with SENCOs, teachers, and other professionals to develop and implement Individual Education Plans (IEPs).
  • Monitor and record student progress, adapting strategies as needed to meet their evolving needs.
  • Facilitate the inclusion of SEND students in mainstream classes and extracurricular activities.
