Inclusion Support Worker – Full time – Wakefield
We are looking to appoint an Inclusion Support Worker to work across a Multi Academy Trust of Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) and Alternative Provision settings across Wakefield.
The trust consists of 3 settings which are located across Wakefield and cater for young people aged 5-19 with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs, who are unable to access mainstream education due to their needs.
We are seeking an experienced Inclusion Support Worker, with a sound understanding of meeting the SEMH needs of young people, and who can provide consistency across several settings.
The role will involve:
You will provide pastoral support to pupils, receive and supervise pupils excluded from, or otherwise not working to, a normal timetable, and attend to pupils’ personal needs and provide advice to assist in their social, health & hygiene development, and participate in comprehensive assessment of pupils to determine those in need of particular help.
This role involves working with vulnerable young people with complex needs, and as such may exhibit extremely challenging behavior including verbal and physical aggression. It is therefore vital that any individual applying for this role is resilient, and able to de-escalate pupils at risk of reaching crisis. Training in Positive Handling Strategies such as Team Teach, MAPA or Studio 3 would be beneficial, although not essential as training can be made available.
Provide Education is a leading education recruitment agency placing Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Cover Supervisors, HLTAs and Nursery Nurses into Schools and Nurseries across Yorkshire and the East Midlands.
Benefits of working with Provide Education:

As part of our recruitment process, we will undertake the necessary checks to complete your registration with us, inclusive of a video interview, current references and DBS check.
