Job summary

The Role

This is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of children with special educational needs and disabilities.

Learning Support Assistants (LSA) work alongside teachers and help teach skills to individual pupils. You'll be someone who likes children and young people and is willing to be responsible both for helping them learn, but also for their safety and wellbeing.

It's not always an easy job, but it offers huge job satisfaction. You'll be part of a supportive team and we'll teach you how. The Trust is noted for its staff training and professional development. There are opportunities to progress as a Teaching Assistant, Supervisory Teaching Assistant and Higher-Level Teaching Assistant through our internal progression scheme.

About you:

We are looking for candidates who are caring, have experience of working with children and young people in either a voluntary or paid capacity. Experience of working with children with Special Educational Needs would be an advantage but is not essential as training will be provided
