Early Years ASD Teaching Assistant - Salford

Tradewind Manchester are supporting a two-form entry primary school based in Salford, M7 to recruit for their Specialist Enhanced Resource within the school. It is a temporary position starting ASAP but could lead to a permanent contract for the right candidate.

This Primary School need proactive Teaching Assistants to support Nursery aged children who have Autism. You will be working in their specialist unit alongside 6 other members of staff. The children also have some forms of ADHD, so the school are looking for energetic but calm and patient Teaching Assistants who love what they do. Ideally you will have prior experience supporting children who display challenging behaviour but this is not essential if you have the right attitude. The children tend to push boundaries and lash out, they will therefore require a resilient and determined TA.

A successful candidate must be:

  • Be dedicated, resilient and proactive
  • Experience with behaviour management strategies
  • Able to start ASAP
  • MUST be able to commit until July 2022
  • Be available on a full-time basis for the full academic year
  • Already have or be happy to apply for an enhanced DBS disclosure.
  • Overseas Police Clearances (if applicable) and professional reference checks
