Vacancy details: SEN Learning Support Assistant required Ipswich
Required from: ASAP
An experienced LSA (Learning Support Assistant) is required to work at one of our client Special Educational Needs Schools with an ASAP start.
Previous experience of working with children who have SEMH ( Social, emotional and mental health) is essential, however additional training will be provided for suitable candidates.
Social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs are a type of special educational needs in which children/young people have severe difficulties in managing their emotions and behaviour. They often show inappropriate responses and feelings to situations.
As a dedicated LSA for SEMH students you will need to be confident and comfortable in aiding students that are resistant to learning, having experienced a trauma. This is because students with an EHCP for SEMH have individual needs that need empathy, support and understanding. The schools aim is that every child has access to the best possible opportunity to gain an education, social and life skills, as well as benefit from non curriculum-based lessons.
As a Learning Support Assistant, you will be providing invaluable 1:1 support to children within the classroom setting. You may also be required to support the child/ren outside of the school in an alternative educational setting offering vocational studies, so a full driving licence is essential.
This is a term-time only position working 9am-3:30pm, Monday to Friday, offering a salary range from £15,000.00 to £18,000.00 per year.
To be successfully appointed in this role you will need to have eligibility to work within the UK and have a valid Enhanced DBS.
