You will plan and undertake personalised, relevant academic focussed activities with pupils within an individualised programme. The individualised programme offered to a CYP may comprise of 1:1 face-to-face sessions, online live 1:1 sessions delivered using Microsoft Teams or a Blended offer using a combination of these methods.

You will be a passionate individual, experienced in delivering positive outcomes, who can support children with social, emotional and behavioral difficulties. We are seeking candidates who are motivated, reliable, empathetic, and keen to rise to the daily challenges of supporting and championing vulnerable learners.

You will require excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to manage challenging situations, and the ability to communicate clearly and successfully both verbally and on written records and reports.

The Education Programme maintains a CPD programme for the whole team, including regular training on high incidence SEND.
