   of special needs to provide more targeted and meaningful learning
   experiences. 
-  Utilising effective behavioural management techniques to assist in promoting
   an optimal learning environment within the classroom.
-  Assisting the teacher to set-up engaging and interactive practical lesson
   activities.
-  Undertake additional duties, such as break and lunch duties, as and when is
   required.
  
The majority of our roles require candidates who are able to commit to a long-term position 5 days a week, during typical school hours (usually between 8:30am - 3:30pm).
