Are you a strong and resilient Behaviour Teaching Assistant looking for a challenging and rewarding role in a fantastic SEN school for children with Autism and SEMH needs?

Do you have experience helping children with Autism and SEMH needs feel calmer and more settled in a school environment?


I am working with a fantastic and supportive SEN school in the London Borough of Wandsworth who are seeking an experienced Behaviour Teaching Assistant.

You will work 1:1 with a pupil who needs support with challenging behaviour and help them feel as calm and settled as possible so they can learn effectively.

This role requires a strong, resilient person who would be a strong role model.


Requirements of a Behaviour Teaching Assistant

  • Experience with challenging behaviour – this role would really suit someone who has worked in a PRU or SEMH school, has worked as a Pastoral Officer in a school, or has experience with challenging behaviour as a Youth Worker / Youth Mentor.
  • Experience working to support students with physically and emotionally challenging behaviour.
  • A resilient personality and an ability to build rapport quickly with staff and students.
  • De-escalation training, such as Team Teach, would be a bonus for this role; however, the school will provide their own specialised de-escalation training.
  • An interest in Autism/ASC, and mental health, as well as seeing behaviour as a form of communication, is essential for this Behaviour Teaching Assistant role


What to Expect as a Behaviour Teaching Assistant

  • The opportunity to work in a brilliant SEN school alongside a highly supportive team
  • The opportunity to really make a difference in the life of a pupil with Autism and SEMH needs.
  • Long-term to permanent positions available
  • The opportunity for a good work-life balance due to school time hours.
  • The opportunity to develop your skills as a Behaviour Specialist Teaching Assistant

This challenging and highly rewarding role requires a strong and resilient personality and a strong drive to help and support children with additional needs.

If you feel you are ready to take that next step in your career and like the sound of this wonderful school, please do not hesitate to reach out!
