Extra-curricular opportunities will be developed for the students on your caseload and you will work closely with other departments.

You will work on a full time basis supporting student's behaviour and learning in and outside of the class. Having good knowledge of the mainstream curriculum, under direction you will work with other members of the team to lead withdrawal sessions that supplement the main teaching within the class but also to deliver interventions which accelerate progress.
