Learning Support Assistant - About the candidate:

I am seeking to appoint an outstanding SEN LSA for long-term jobs at an outstanding Brent SEN primary school. You will work with students who have complex learning difficulties and benefit from smaller classes, a personalised curriculum and additional support. These children are working at lower levels than their peers and need support in developing their communication skills. The students need to be coaxed into interacting with the outside world and as an LSA you will need to set clear boundaries, provide lots of positive reinforcement, be patience and understanding. The work can be challenging as pupils do struggle to express themselves and this can result in frustrations - students can lash out from time to time and some students pinch or scratch when agitated. Personal care tasks are part of the daily routine so applicants must be willing to help change, toilet and feed pupils.

Learning Support Assistant - Additional Benefits:

  • Great pay rates
  • Free Specialist Accredited Training
  • High quality professional development opportunities
  • A calm, purposeful and well-resourced working environment
  • Friendly Management Team
  • Excellent Transport Links
  • Zone 2 Brent

Learning Support Assistant - Skills and experience:

  • Recent UK TA experience
  • NVQ L2/3 Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools
  • GCSE Maths & English grades A-C
  • Experience supporting learners with autism and complex learning difficulties
  • Good BM Skills
