Job description

SEN Teaching Assistant  – Immediate start

We are working with a SEN School in North London who are looking for a 1:1 LSA to support 2 students each day (both non-verbal) for half a day each in Reception and Year 1. Both students are highly challenging with high level needs and potential to lash out.  Both are also very active so will require support who are able to catch up with them and restrain as necessary. Experience with de-escalation techniques such as Team Teach would be advantageous. 

The school is looking for someone to start asap in an ongoing role for the summer term.


Applications are welcome from TAs and LSAs of all experience levels who have worked with students with special educational needs and hold an enhanced DBS for children on the update service. Please send your CV to Laura at LT Support today for immediate trial.

The ideal candidate must have:

  • Relevant experience
  • Immediate, full time availability
  • Clear communication
  • Committed to securing high levels of progress, achievement for students
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • PECS experience
  • Moving & Handling training
  • Enhanced DBS on the update service

We are currently working with numerous vacancies so if this position is not quite for you please do send us your CV to discuss other opportunities more suitable to your requirements. We work with you to find the right role for you so we will speak to schools on your behalf.

LT Support will try to respond to all applications within three working days. However due to the volume of applications we receive we are sometimes unable to respond to individual candidates. If we have not contacted you within three working days your application has been unsuccessful and your details have not been retained. Please apply for any other vacancies we advertise in future that you think you may be suitable for.
