The role

I am looking for an excellent, enthusiastic and passionate Child Care Assistant to join a school based in Hillingdon; this is a SEND school with an excellent reputation for providing fantastic education to young people and also taking great care of their staff!

Your day-to-day role would be working on a 1:1 basis within the main classroom, ensuring the child can understand the work they are being given, and help overcome any barriers they may face to their learning. You would be required to manage behaviour, support academically and emotionally, carry out personal care if needed and communicate with parents, therapists and teachers.

Your role would also consist of taking the child out for interventions outside of the classroom so that you can really support the child to the best of your ability and ultimately encourage them to achieve the best they can.

This school is also fantastic at supporting Child Care assistants that wish to pursue a school-based career. Therefore, if you are an aspiring teacher, this school would be the best place for you to be to lay the foundations of your career!

This position is term time only, so no more 12-hour shifts if you currently work in a support work setting!

This is a wonderful opportunity for someone to show their passion for SEND children and provide genuine help that can positively impact a child’s needs.
