Are you a competent LSA/TA with SEND experience? Or, do you have a keen interest in working in a SEND school setting and are looking for a new challenge?

Protocol Education is currently recruiting for experienced SEND TA/LSA's to work in primary schools in the Lewisham and Greenwich area. We currently have a wide range of exciting positions available for either day-to-day or long-term supply with pupils that need support in primary schools.

Your main duties will involve:
• Inspiring and engaging with young children or adults with physical and mental difficulties.

• Assessing and reporting on individual pupils' progress.
• Assisting with the personal care needs of pupils, which may include: feeding, changing and manual handling.
• Liaising with parents, carers and professionals such as mainstream teachers, education welfare officers, social workers and Healthcare professionals.
