Reeson Education are actively looking to recruit experienced Special Needs (SEN/SEND) Teaching Assistant, Higher Level Teaching Assistant and Learning Support Assistant staff for a four positions working across two Wandsworth 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).

These two well run Wandsworth schools are very good at training their staff and both 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 this can be a great way to become accustomed with the national curriculum. 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 as a Teaching Assistant or who have an interest in working with SEN children/young people as a Teaching Assistant. Support and training will be provided by both the school and us here at Reeson Education.

  • Makaton, PECS or Team-Teach training - not essential
  • Excellent Interpersonal Skills and Emotional Intelligence
  • Experience in a Classroom environment
  • Good Literacy and Numeracy Skills
