Mainstream Secondary Teaching Assistant Role
Axcis are a supply agency that specialise in SEND (special educational needs and disabilities). We're currently recruiting for teaching assistants who can cover on the day, short term and long term bookings in a variety of mainstream, SEND, PRU's and alternative provision schools across Cardiff, and surrounding areas.
This is a great way to gain experience quickly as you will be working in lots of different setting with different types of special needs. You could be general in class support supporting all the children with their studies or you could be 1-1 with a particular pupil.
We are always looking for teaching assistants who are happy to work in secondary schools in Cardiff.
To work for us you need to have a minimum of three months experience working with children or with adults with special needs. You could have personal or voluntary experience; it doesn't have to come from a work environment. The school day is 8:30-3:30pm and we pay weekly on a Friday, a week in arrears. We pay a competitive pay rate.
You may be expected to work with some children with challenging behaviour and you may need to support more physically disabled children with personal care and manual handling. To work for us you will need to be able to work a minimum of two days a week. You will get a calendar and you can choose which days you want to work each week. The more schools you can get to the more work we can offer you so car drivers will be at an advantage.
If you don't have a DBS on the update service, you will need to get a new one which will cost £46. Also we need a minimum of two references, one covering the last year of employment and one needs to come from a job where you've worked with children or with adults with special needs. You will need to register with the EWC.
