Learning Support Assistant

You're currently working in the classroom supporting young people with SEN and you pride yourself on the contribution you make to children's education. You're a valuable member of the support team and are committed to ensuring all children have equal access to education. Are you seeking a career in education?

If you are a dedicated or aspiring Learning Support Assistant, who can support children with SEN and overcome barriers to learning, this might be a great assignment for you. Are you passionate about all children have access to a high quality education?

A secondary school role may be daunting to some, but it's rewarding to watch children benefit and thrive from the support you provide - you will see the difference you're making to young people's learning every day.

The school:

This secondary school is at the heart of their local community, which allows you to get to know the school and the students in it. They are a large comprehensive school, with a thriving sixth form. In a secondary school, you will have exposure to all subject specialisms, allowing you to support students through a broad curriculum.

Their aim is to ensure that the students thrive during their time at this school - this ensures that students leave school prepared for their journey into adulthood; they leave school confident and articulate learners with a clear desire to make a positive contribution to society.

They have a centralised behaviour system allowing consistent classroom strategies with low impact processes. Our culture is friendly and supportive with a strong commitment to staff wellbeing and development. For the right candidate, School Centred Initial Teacher Training can be provided if you wish to pursue a career in teaching.

The assignment:

  • Supporting children's behaviour for learning
  • Assisting children with their understanding of activities and encourage active participation in class
  • Assisting with note taking
  • A secondary LSA will have exposure to all the curriculum subjects
  • You may work with individual learners in the classroom 1:1 or you may work with individuals or small groups in the Learning Support department.
  • Supporting the pupil's individual needs, according to their Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
  • Participating in team meetings and Continual Professional Development (CPD) training provided by the school as an active member of a team
  • Maintaining pupil progress records
  • Supporting regulations pertaining to safeguarding (Department for Education )

If you would like the opportunity to explore further and find out more, then I would love to talk to you if you've provided support to children in any capacity and would like to transfer these skills to a school-based setting.
