The role

I am looking for a teaching assistant to take on a new role for a primary school located in Islington. This school has an excellent reputation and has an ‘outstanding’ OFSTED rating. They are fantastic at training those at the beginning of their career who are looking to get experience with SEN, particularly in speech and language development. This is a mainstream school, however, a high percentage of pupils have SEN. SEN teaching assistants will need to be proactive, engaged and ready to carry out day to day SEN teaching assistant tasks. The staff at the school are very supportive and make you feel very welcome.


The ideal candidate

The ideal SEN teaching assistant would best suit a graduate looking to gain experience working with children with speech and language development needs. However, non-graduates with the right attitude and passion for the job, could equally benefit from becoming an SEN teaching assistant in terms of their personal development and career progression. The ideal candidate will have a can do attitude and always be looking for learning opportunities. You should be kind, empathetic and genuinely driven to improve the lives of others.

  • The chance to develop YOUR career
