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. Support and training will be provided by the school and a comprehensive induction and training programme will be in place for the first month to ensure you are given every opportunity to be successful, confident and effective in your job.
