Job description
Are you committed in providing support to pupils with SEN? Do you want to make a difference in pupil’s lives?

We are currently working with a number of special schools around the Kirklees area that are looking for experienced SEN learning support assistants. These roles are on a temporary contract that could potentially become permanent roles depending on how well you excel yourself. Working within a special school setting requires hard work, resilience, commitment and positivity to encourage pupils with SEN to progress in their educational development. You will be required to undertake a trial day and also have a DBS that is on the up date service.

For this SEN Learning support assistant role you will:

• Have at least 6 months experience working in a special school or similar setting.

• Have the ability to confidently support a wide range of pupils with SEN.

• Adapt activities to ensure they reflect pupil’s individual needs.

• Record and report any developments or issues that arise to the teacher or SENCO.

• Liaise with the teacher or SENCO with how the pupil or pupils you supporting are progressing.

• Have the ability to use own initiative when situations occur.

• Have a calm and professional demeanour.

If you are interested in applying for this SEN Learning support assistant role, email your C.V to or for more information call Tracey on 01132468220.

Please note: 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.
