Axcis is continuing to grow as more and more schools hear about us and start using our services. As a result, our Manchester office has a new consultant, so if you’re seeking work (or staff) in the Manchester, Stockport or Tameside areas, why not get in touch with Graham? Find out a bit more about him here.
Prior to joining Axcis, I gained six years of recruitment experience working solely in the SEND sector in Greater Manchester. This has given me an excellent understanding of the needs of SEND schools, PRUs and alternative provisions in terms of the types of staff who will be successful in their settings and the types of people who will make the most difference to their children.
I am also a Team Teach tutor – trained in delivering de-escalation techniques and strategies to teachers and support staff. This is something we value at Axcis and often offer courses in to our own candidates.
During my career in the SEND sector, I have also gained experience as a youth worker with vulnerable homeless young adults displaying SEMH difficulties. This has been in a range of settings, including a residential home, a homeless shelter and a youth centre. I also have volunteer teaching assistant experience in a mainstream primary school as well as a specialist autism school.
This combination of training and experience helps me to understand how important it is to invest in and provide opportunities for the most vulnerable young people in our society and not just the most able. It is important for me to feel that the work that I do has a bigger meaning and is providing a beneficial contribution to society and individuals, not just the satisfaction of doing my job well and being successful.
