Job Advert - Division Information

Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK. 

Job Advert Location Description

With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Job Advert Role Description

Mark College is a specialist day school registered for young people who have needs associated with a diagnosis on the autistic spectrum/SPLD and are aged between 10 and 18 years. Our tailored approach means we are able to support young people with a wide range of learning difficulties. We accept that young people who are referred to us may have previously experienced a ‘cycle of failure’ and our aim is to have a transformational impact on their lives by them experiencing a ‘culture of success’. We support all young people to achieve successful outcomes so that they can progress to experience fulfilling and rewarding lives.

We offer bespoke packages of education and therapy for our young people. We strongly believe that some individuals will always struggle to ‘fit in’ to existing structures and will only thrive when their provision is tailored to their specific needs and circumstances.

We warmly welcome our students into our community, which is underpinned by a culture of outstanding relationships, nurture and unconditional high regard.

As a Bank Teaching Assistant you will be a key member of our education support team, working as part of a specialist team of teachers and therapists to deliver personalised curriculum packages that motivate and inspire our students. Experience as a Teaching Assistant would be useful, but as long as you have the communication and caring skills required for this role and a willingness to learn, we will give you all the training and development you need to succeed.

Whilst not essential, experience of supporting children with SLD and complex needs would be an advantage.

Our Bank Workers are trained to the same level as our permanent staff and are treated as an integral part of the team. Successful candidates will contribute to the effective implementation of individual programmes by supporting the teaching and learning, social and independence activities and experiences, which enhance the learning and development of children and young people.

You must also be able to demonstrate a high degree of emotional resilience and the ability to remain calm under pressure.

Shift: 08:15 - 16:00.
