Learning Support Assistant - About the candidate:

I am seeking to appoint an outstanding SEN Learning Support Assistant for daily supply work at an outstanding SEN school in Central London. You will work with students who have complex learning difficulties arranging from the complex end of the autistic spectrum through to profound and multiple learning difficulties. These children and young people are working at significantly lower levels than their peers and need support in accessing and understanding the outside world, basic personal tasks and developing their communication skills. The students need to be coaxed into interacting with the outside world and as an LSA you will need to set clear boundaries, provide lots of positive reinforcement, be patience and understanding. Personal care is a significant and none negotiable aspect of the work in school as students in the primary, secondary and post 16 phases will need support with feeding, toileting, changing and in some cases taking medication - If this is not for you please don't apply! The work can be challenging as pupils do struggle to express themselves and this can result in frustrations - students can lash out from time to time and some students pinch or scratch when agitated.

Learning Support Assistant - Additional Benefits:

  • Great pay rates
  • Free Specialist Accredited Training
  • Access to world class facility for training and research in education
  • Friendly Management Team
  • Excellent Transport Links

Learning Support Assistant - Skills and experience:

  • Recent UK TA experience
  • NVQ L2/3 Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools
  • GCSE Maths & English grades A-C
  • Experience supporting learners with autism and complex learning difficulties
  • Good BM Skills
