Reeson Education are actively looking to recruit experienced Learning Support Assistant staff for Special Needs Schools in West London. We are currently filling 8 positions working across 3 West London SEN schools. We work with a broad range of SEN(D) schools which support a range of needs from Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), Autism (ASD), Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD). Currenly we are seeking people to work with ASD (Primary and Secondary), SLD (Primary) and PMLD (Secondary) classes.

These outstanding West London SEN schools are very good at training their staff and they are looking for people who are open to working with their children, able to show initiative and ready to get stuck in. If you are an overseas trained teacher or a graduate a Learning Support Assistant job can be a great way to become accustomed with the national curriculum and a stepping stone into teaching. Personal care may be part of you daily routine and can entail helping the students feed themselves, getting changed, accessing the toilet, taking medication or just getting around school. If you are concerned about personal care we can ensure that you only work in less demanding classes.

We are looking for bright, energetic individuals who either have experience working in SEN schools or who have an interest in working with SEN children/young people as an Learning Support Assistant. Support and training will be provided by both the school and us here at Reeson Education.

The ideal Learning Support Assistant candidate would have:

  • Experience with Special Educational Needs (SEN)
  • Makaton, PECS or Team-Teach training - not essential
  • Excellent Interpersonal Skills and Emotional Intelligence
  • Experience in a Classroom environment
  • Good Literacy and Numeracy Skills
  • A Positive, Proactive, Professional, Friendly and Outgoing Personality
