A school in Blackburn have approached us in order to source and appoint a Teaching Assistant (L2, L3 or Degree trained) to work closely alongside a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

He also struggles to communicate and socialise with other children and will need different strategies implemented in order to build self-confidence and improve behaviour.

The Head Teacher has stated that the general behaviour of the school is ‘Very good'. Due to this she has said she would like to employ a practitioner with fantastic behaviour management. She also said the School are ‘fully prepared for the pupil joining the school and want a 1:1 Teaching Assistant to build a solid relationship with him and encourage a positive learning attitude'. The school is a ‘Good' School as rated by Ofsted.

The salary is based on a 6.5 hour day position held Monday to Friday and, depending on experience, this could vary between £10.77 - £12.77 per hour.
