We are looking for an experienced and positive Teaching Assistant to join our large, friendly and very committed team of Teaching Assistants to provide individual and group interventions in our specialist Hearing Impaired unit. A willingness to manage, when necessary, the care needs of some of our children would also be a requirement. Excellent oral and written English skills are essential and a willingness to train for Level 1 British Sign Language (BSL) is desirable in order to allow you to help support identified children taught in school as part of our provision for deaf children.
