A secondary level special needs school based in Croydon is currently looking for experienced learning support assistants to join their team as soon as possible.

The school holds 130 students who all have a form of high-level special needs, ranging from, severe challenging behaviour, autism, PMLD, complex needs, ASD and ADHD.

The role will involve you working in a classroom of about 5-6 pupils, so you will be given the opportunity to work with them on both a 1:1 and small-group basis. You will be working Monday to Friday, from 8:30am to 4:00pm on a long-term basis, with the potential to eventually go permanent directly with the school.

As the children at the school are of all different age groups and follow different learning pathways, you will be expected to move around classes and work with children of all needs when and where needed.

Due to the nature of the children and their needs, the school is looking for somebody who is extremely proactive, versatile, and open to working with all different forms of special needs. Experience of working with TEACCH (treatment and education of autistic and related communication-disabled children) is also preferred.

This is an excellent opportunity if you are currently looking for a role in a highly rewarding field that will offer you excellent progression rates and the opportunity to grow.

If you are interested, please apply today. The head teacher is looking to trial people immediately so all successful candidates will be contacted within 3-5 working days.
