Job description
SEN-PMLD Learning Support Assistants Required

A school that caters for children with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) are currently seeking Learning Support Assistants. Each child in the class has a physical disability as well as other diagnosed difficulties, such as Autism (ASD) and Downs Syndrome.

The student's education does not follow the national curriculum but is very much focused on personal development, physically and mentally. They all have personal goals and are constantly encouraged to push themselves and given tasks to stimulate their activity. The school likes their staff to work closely with the students in either small groups or 1:1 so that they can gain a better understanding of the needs and abilities of the students.

This role will require feeding, changing and personal care, therefore a background in nursing and/or tube feeding would be useful, however the school create a very encouraging and helpful environment and are willing to offer any training.

This is an incredibly rewarding role with the results apparent and in front of you every day as you see each student gradually grow and push themselves. If you have experience working with you children or young adults with special education needs, please send your CV or call Sonia on 020 3219 7740.

Protocol Education is a leading supply teaching agency. We find jobs for teachers and teaching assistants in schools throughout England.

Please note that you will not be considered for this position if you don't possess an enhanced DBS Disclosure, or if you are not eligible to work in the UK.

We undertake safeguarding checks on all our workers in accordance with the DfE statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education. As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00
