  • The ability to apply sensible and suitable behaviour management strategies when dealing with challenging/high-risk behaviour.
  • The ability to build trust-worthy relationships, both with learners/ young adults and staff within a team.
  • If you have the experience and skills that are appropriate for the role of a Primary TA/Behavioural support role then please apply with your full CV.

    If you require any further information or have any questions regarding potential roles, please contact George Walton at Veritas Education (Leeds) on 0113 403 2200 or email
