I have 5 positions available to start in September based in Special Needs Schools working small classes supporting children with PMLD and other complex cognitive difficulties. Pupils have complex learning and medical needs, most are wheelchair bound and are unable to communicate with the outside world this means that a background in social care or nursing and some school based TA experience will be a huge advantage. You will be expected to support them with Hoisting, Manual Handling Needs and Personal Care (feeding, changing and toileting). There will be comprehensive on the job training and lots of support both through our client schools (induction training, PECS, Makaton and Team Teach) as well as free CPD from Reeson Education covering Safeguarding, Introduction to SEN, Phonics, Effective Listening, Behaviour Management etc.)

You will be working with students aged between 5 19, all of whom have statements of Special Education Needs. Most of the children you will be working with have very limited communication skills, and some are completely nonverbal. You will be working either 1:1 with a particular student or supporting a class alongside a team of fellow LSAs and the class teacher.

The personal care duties will include:

PEG feeding

Feeding orally

To be eligible to apply for this position, you will need to be available to start immediately, as well as being able to commit to working 8:30 4pm, 5 days per week in Tower Hamlets. You must have a good command of numeracy and literacy, as this is especially important when supporting pupils with limited communication skills.

Ideally, you will have the following experience:

PMLD experience
LSA or care experience
SEND experience
