Vision for Education, the supply arm of the TES are actively recruiting for Learning Support Assistants to work with and support Secondary (KS3/4) students who have moderate learning difficulties (MLD). This role is to be based in Gateshead within a school for SEND students that vary in terms of student centred learning and emotional needs. 

This is a temporary but full time (Mon-Fri) vacancy but as with all our roles within SEND there is always a chance of the position becoming longer term if found to be successful. 

This is also a fantastic opportunity for a newly qualified Teacher (NQT) looking to gain further experience in SEND or for an experienced Teaching Assistant looking to gain a secure role with real job satisfaction and prospects of going on to a permanent contract. 

Applicants must:

  • Have experience of working with young people who have complex needs.
  • Hold current moving and handling training certificate (Preferred but not essential).
  • Be available to work in the Gateshead area.
  • Be eligible to work in the UK and meet all national safeguarding criteria.
  • Hold a current DBS certificate and it be registered on the online update service. If your DBS is not registered online or you do not hold a DBS Vision will assist in your application. 

In return, as an agency we offer:

  • Excellent and transparent rates starting from £60 per day.
  • Consistent seminars and training courses such as Team Teach, Moving      & Handling Autism Awareness (paid for by Vision) to continue your individual professional development.
  • 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.
  • 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.
