SEN Teaching Assistant – Harrow

Are you a caring and professional Psychology Graduate, who can deal with challenging and difficult situations?

If you aspire to become an Educational Psychologist or SEN Teacher, or you want to pursue a career in teaching and are looking for valuable school experience, working as an SEN Teaching Assistant within a London Primary School, would be the perfect role for you!

My Client school is looking for an SEN Teaching Assistant to join their School support team asap. This is an excellent opportunity to gain school experience in a Primary School. You will be supporting pupils with needs such as ASD / Autism and Asperger’s, and other associated learning difficulties.

POSITION: SEN Teaching Assistant – Primary School - Aged 3-11yrs

PERSON: Graduates ONLY – perfect for those focused on Educational Psychology / SEN

QUALIFICATIONS: Strong academic background required!

SCHOOL: Inclusive & multi-cultural Primary School – Lovely team

LOCATION: London Borough of Harrow – Outer London

TRANSPORT: Excellent public transport links – walking distance from Rail & Underground – Good bus links

SALARY: £350 per week


To be considered for this SEN Teaching Assistant post you will have a passion for working with children with special needs / SEN. This is a challenging role and you will need to be patient, with a calm temperament. You will have a strong academic background and ideally will be a Psychology Graduate, with a 2:1 degree or better. You must have some prior experience with SEN to be considered.


The SEN Teaching Assistant role will see you working with a range of pupils. Your main task is to help them grasp the curriculum and to engage with their class to develop their skills. This may involve you working with the whole class, supporting the teacher, or doing 1:1 work and working with a small group away from the class. Pupils will vary in terms of ability, with some having speech and language difficulties and others displaying testing behaviour at times. You will be calm under pressure and be dynamic, being flexible to handle each situation as it arises.


This is a very inclusive school and, so you will be joining a lovely team of SEN Teaching Assistants. The school is based in the Outer London borough of Harrow and they have a diverse pupil catchment, including larger than average numbers of SEN and EAL children. The site is only a short walk from an Underground station, well linked by Rail & Underground.
