All SEN schools are situated near great transport links in the areas of Greenwich, Lewisham and Lambeth and eager to trial suitable candidates available for full time positions to support students with additional needs.

Any previous experience working in a school or with children aged 11 - 19 years old is desirable, however, if you have a genuine desire to work with pupils who require 1:1 support, then you will be considered as well.

We focus on finding candidates full time and longer term work in the one school and this is exactly what these opportunities are! The schools are looking for a commitment until at least July 2020.

  • A desire to get into teaching or work 1:1 with SEN pupils.

As listed above, the SEN Teaching Assistant post gives you brilliant benefits, namely the branching career options where you can take your first-hand experience with SEN children and open many doors such as becoming an SEN teacher, a teacher, a SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator), just to name a few.
