Emotional Literacy Support Assistant – Bradford


justteachers are currently looking for a nurturing and passionate ELSA trained candidate for a school based in Bradford.

Experience of special educational needs is an advantage but not essential. We will happily consider candidates with transferable skills and a passion for children and young people with Special Educational needs and Disabilities (SEND).

Ideally you will have some experience or knowledge of the points below:

  • Experience assisting pupils with ADHD, SEMH and ASC.
  • Energy, enthusiasm and vision.
  • Creative & inspiring attitude.
  • The desire and ability to work on an individual and team basis.
  • Experience of Lego Therapy
  • Some knowledge of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Emotion coaching

Your work will depend on the age of the children and their individual needs, but may include:

  • preparing learning materials under the supervision of the teacher
  • working inside or outside the classroom with individuals or groups
  • adapting support according to needs
  • looking after children’s physical, social and emotional welfare
  • creating a stimulating environment
  • giving information and help to teachers
  • keeping records and attending review meetings
  • Assisting with personal care such as feeding and changing

If you would like to make a difference in a young person’s life we would love to hear from you. Please call justteachers on 0800 832243 or email westyorkshire@justteachers.co.uk
