Are you bilingual with experience of supporting children with English as an Additional Language?

A niche School service has an increase in pupils attending schools this year where English is not their first language. Some children with EAL find it difficult to integrate with their peers and struggle to access the curriculum. The language barriers may also extend to wider family who are supporting the child. We are seeking Learning Support Assistants to support EAL pupils to assist their development with the English language. This support will be delivered with reading, writing, listening and speaking activities. 
Each pupil has their own individual learning plan which has been implemented by assessment already undertaken by the School and EAL service. You will be required to work with pupils on a one to one basis and sometimes in a group. There will be activities set and after each session, you will be required to record the progress of the session and report back to the Teacher.
We are currently seeking a number of EAL support workers to work in various Schools. We are also seeking a wealth of additional languages. When applying, please specify which additional language(s) you speak. 

Minimum requirements:

Minimum of 3 months experience of working with children in an SEND environment - Specifically ASD
Fully enhanced DBS (on the Update service) - ability to obtain a new one
References covering the last two years (no gaps)
EWC registration (School support worker)
Right to work in the UK

Fantastic rates of pay - One of the highest paying agencies in South Wales
One of South Wales' leading SEND providers
No payroll fees
