The role

I am looking for enthusiastic, positive individuals looking to work as a Learning Support Assistant in the secondary part of a MLD/SLD school based in Barnet. All children in this school have a SEN diagnosis either moderate or severe, and therefore require a supportive Learning Support Assistant to encourage them to achieve their best. Whilst academic achievement is important, it is also important for the young people in this school to be supported in regard to their social, emotional and mental health needs. Therefore, it is imperative that the Learning Support Assistant can form good, trusting relationships with students and colleagues.

The ideal candidate will have good previous experience working with children in an SEN role, preferably with an aspiration to pursue a career in SEND. You should be professional, resilient and have a great attitude to work in order to produce the best support for your pupils!
