£80 - £85 PAYE

Immediate start

Are you looking to work in a welcoming and nurturing mainstream primary school?

I am working with an outstanding mainstream primary school in Islington who are seeking a passionate and experienced SEN Learning Support Assistant to join their friendly team. The child that the successful candidate will be supporting is in year 1 and has ASD, he also wears a nappy so some personal care is required. The role requires someone who has experience with ASD and can be patient and calming.

This 1:1 Learning Support Assistant role would really suit applicants with experience working with children with SEN in a school environment, however the school may consider applicants who personal experience with SEN, or who truly care about having a positive effect on the lives of SEN children.

What to expect working as a 1:1 Learning Support Assistant:

  • Fantastic training opportunities working alongside teachers and speech therapists for anyone looking to progress into teaching, childcare or psychology.
  • Continuous CPD training for all SEN Support Assistants, including: Phonics, Makaton, PECs, Colourful Semantics etc
  • An amazing way to gain experience working to support a pupil with special needs in a fantastic mainstream school.
  • A kind, friendly and respectful workplace where you can feel accepted and comfortable.
  • An opportunity to really make a positive social and emotional difference in the life of the child you are primarily working with.

Requirements for a 1:1 Learning Support Assistant:

  • Experience working with SEN is desirable, but anyone with a positive energy and willingness to learn and contribute is key!
  • Experience working with children in a school or childcare setting would be fantastic, however this is not essential.
  • An ability to provide a calming and presence while being engaging.
  • A bubbly and energetic mindset with a good sense of fun.
  • An ability to build strong relationships with both students and staff.
