Protocol Education are currently working with an excellent SEND College in Hammersmith, who are looking for an experienced Learning Support Assistant with SEND experience to join their college as soon as possible.
You will be working with children aged between 16 and 19 years old; each with statements of Special Education Needs. Most of the students you will be working with have very limited communication skills, and some are completely non-verbal. You will be assisting more than one class, as well as working 1:1 with your selected student. This schools looks after children with SEMH and ASD; although, a majority of the time you will spend within one class.

To be eligible to apply for this position, it is essential that you have experience supporting pupils with PMLD and their personal care needs - this will involve changing and feeding. The school has an in-built swimming complex and the successful TA will have to be comfortable in a swimming environment and on occasion may have to enter the pool. In addition to this, PECS and/or Makaton will be useful in this post; however, training will be provided.
You will be upskilled in the following areas - Manual Handling; so that you can assist with their students' needs.
You will need to be available to start immediately, as well as being able to commit to working full school hours, a minimum of 3 school days per week. You must have a good command of numeracy and literacy, as this is especially important when supporting pupils with limited communication skills.
This post will initially be for daily cover, however, there is scope for long term work.

Ideally, you will have the following experience:

If you have experience working with children or young adults with special education needs, and are interested in making a positive contribution to the lives of young people, please send your CV to Richard.Danso@protocol-education.com or call Richard @ Protocol on 020 3219 7745.
