Are you looking for a rewarding new role as a Learning Support Assistant in a Special Needs School from September 2018? Are you passionate about making a real difference to the lives of children with Learning Disabilities? If so, then we want to hear from you today!

We are working with a number of SEND Schools in the Peterborough and surrounding areas that are looking for Part-Time (2-3 days a week) Learning Support Assistants (LSA) from September 2018. We are therefore actively recruiting for Teaching Assistants and Support Workers in Peterborough to support children and young people with SEND; including Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD), Severe Learning Disabilities (SLD), Autism (ASD) and Social, Emotional and Behaviour (SEBD) Difficulties.

Whilst we are looking for people who have had experience of being a Teaching Assistant and/or Support Worker, this is not essential. This is because we are looking for Support Staff who are able to really engage effectively with students, provide a crucial level of support in the classroom and have a calming and nurturing approach when supporting children with complex needs and learning difficulties.

Every day is different as a Teaching Assistant in an SEND School or Provision. You will be expected to promote a positive and safe learning environment and be able to follow school policies, including their behaviour policy when managing behaviour of students.

Applicants must also:

  • Have an understanding and ideally experience of working with children, young people and/or adults with SEND and Learning Disabilities.
  • Be flexible with your availability (be able to work 2-3 days a week) and be able to work in the Peterborough and surrounding areas.
  • Be eligible to work in the UK and meet all national safeguarding criteria.
  • Hold a current DBS certificate (Child Workforce only) and it be registered on the Online Update Service. If your DBS is not registered online or you do not hold a DBS under Child Workforce, Vision will assist you with your application.
    In return for your hard work, we as an agency will provide:
  • Excellent and transparent rates of pay.
  • Consistent training courses such as Team Teach, Moving & Handling Autism Awareness and access to over 20+ eLearning Courses through Educare (paid for by Vision) to continue your Continued Professional Development.
  • Recommend a Friend Scheme.
  • Dedicated team that work with our supply staff to place them in schools and locations that suit them.
  • Wages paid directly into bank account every week via PAYE (not through an umbrella company).
  • We are an agency that won't charge your school a fee should they wish to offer you a permanent contract; we won't stand in the way of your career.
    This role will be ideal for anybody looking for a new change in career in a very rewarding field! If you believe you are a person that fits all of the above, please do not hesitate to contact the Peterborough office on 01733 371371 today! Alternatively, please submit your CV to us.
