Are you an aspiring psychologist, counsellor or therapist looking for experience in mental health? Do you want to gain first-hand experience supporting the mental health of children?

A friendly, inclusive specialist school is looking for a Teaching Assistant to support children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) Needs. The pupils have a range of difficulties, such as ASD, attachment difficulties and mental health needs.

The perfect candidate will therefore have experience with SEN children and/or adults in any setting. Graduates who have qualified in Psychology, Counselling or Criminology would also be perfect for this.

This is an excellent opportunity for the successful Mental Health Assistant to work alongside both psychologists, therapists and the SENCO based on-site at school. In this role you will gain first-hand experience with children who have significant needs and learn how to communicate and support them, through the help of trained professionals.
