Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant (SEN TA) / Learning Support Assistant (LSA)
Are you a Teaching Assistant or a Learning Support Assistant in Leeds?
Do you have experience working with children who have additional learning needs?
Are you passionate about providing support for those who need it the most?
When the world was in lockdown, schools kept going - so we did we too.
Now that there may finally be light at the end of the tunnel , plenty of schools are looking for hardworking, selfless individuals who are committed to spending that extra bit of time supporting children with additional learning requirements.
If you're reading this advert, you will already know that the role of SEN TA is far from easy and requires a considerable ability to think on your feet and adapt, but you'll also know that it can be the best job on the planet for when the children in your care achieve those 'Eureka' moments.
If you can unlock those doors, you will have:
Experience working with SEND in a previous role
Initiative to adapt planning and try new things
A resilient outlook to remember what matters and to keep trying new strategies
The successful applicant should have:
A flexible approach - being a SEN TA is anything but a normal job.
Some experience working with challenging behaviour (Team Teach/MAPA training desirable)
Our staff are paid through the PAYE (Pay As You Earn) scheme meaning that what you earn, you keep - no Umbrella companies taking those wage-sapping deductions and you will also have access to a Primary consultant with 10 years of Primary school teaching experience to bounce anything off if you ever have any questions.
If this sounds good to you, please get in touch on either the email address below or by giving James a call on (phone number removed), we're waiting for you!
