Do you have any experience of dealing with challenging behaviour?

Are you passionate about supporting young people with social, emotional and mental health issues?

We are seeking candidates to work within a setting dedicated to supporting and educating pupils who display challenging behaviour. The roles are in various locations across Leeds.

The ideal candidate would have a positive, supportive and proactive demeanour, understanding that many of these children may have mental health issues or difficult backgrounds that can have a major influence on their behaviour and emotional state.

The role will vary from working with one child on a one to one basis to helping with a whole class of students. Relevant experience in a similar setting would be beneficial but applications from strong candidates lacking in experience are also welcomed.
