A Special Educational Needs (SEN) School based in Haringey.
We are recruiting for a SEN TA/LSA to support children and young people who have complex needs and specialise in the communication and learning challenges associated with Autism. An SLA is required to support with young learners within KS1 and KS2 working at a lower comprehension level. This is a full time, 5 days a week role.
The Site is in London, Haringey Borough within Crouch End area, close to central London with excellent transport links- having the overground station located 5 to 10 min walk away from the school and a 2 bus stops right outside of the school front gates.
Enjoy a rewarding education career and have a real impact on children and young people’s lives. Join an amazing team creating supportive, nurturing environments where our pupils achieve far more than they ever expected.
As a LSA you will connect directly with the brilliant children and young people we care for, helping to make sure they get the very best from their education. Each individual has a diagnosis of Autism and may have additional needs. They have so much potential, and they will rely on you to guide their learning journeys bespoke to them.
You will help prepare learning materials and run classroom activities, with plenty of hands-on experience and some supervision too. You will take responsibility for their emotional and physical needs, supporting them to develop as individuals and engage with the world.
You will face challenges and overcome them as you flourish and thrive, sharing your skills and learning from others as your career takes you as high as you always dreamed you could go.
The ideal candidate will be motivated, passionate, supportive and committed to supporting young leaners. The learners will require a lot of sensory time, calming influence and support in the community. Experience with ASD and young people is desired but a passion for education and support is key.
Every day will be different, but you will have all the support you need, with lots of skills and experience to draw on along with valuable advice and guidance too.
