Full Time
I am working alongside a Specialist School in Hampton as they require a number of Learning Support Assistants to complete day to day and short term assignments.

The School in question is a day community Special School for pupils aged 7-16 with moderate learning difficulties and additional complex needs (including Autism). There are places for 100 young people, usually in classes of around ten. Pupils are taught by their class-teacher for the majority of lessons, with specialist staff for PE, French, music, drama and dance, and for some specialist courses in KS4.

The ideal candidate will have experience of providing support to pupils within an SEN environment and be willing to develop their skills to the schools high standards of Continuous Professional Development ( CPD ). Health and safety are promoted in all aspects of school life and it is the support staff who are at the heart of this ethos. In this essential role you will be involved in assisting with pupils' physical needs, including hygiene and feeding. You will also be expected to provide vital support in therapy sessions, which help learners to increase their confidence, self-esteem and independence.

Above all candidates must demonstrate passion, reliability and a consistency of character that supports the teachers and provides the care and nurture the learners need to develop and mature
