SEN Teaching Assistant

Hillingdon, London
Do you have a passion for supporting pupils with disabilities? I'm currently recruiting for caring and kind individuals who are genuinely interested in working with the highest levels of need.
If you are an SEN Teaching Assistant experienced in supporting children with Vision Impairments or are keen to develop into a specialist field, I am eager to hear from you.

I'm working with a school urgently looking to meet with candidates for a role to start immediately. Receiving an OFSTED rated Outstanding award in January, this is an opportunity to join a thriving and high performing team achieving great results with their pupils.

This is a school for blind and partially sighted children with significant learning difficulties and disabilities. The school has around 50 pupils aged 2 to 14. The needs supported at this school include: vision impairment, multi-sensory impairment, learning difficulties and disabilities, physical disabilities, communication difficulties as well as additional medical and health needs.

The ideal candidate will be a confident and capable TA, knowledgeable about VI support, manual handling, personal cares and vocational qualifications. Experience working in PMLD or Vision Impaired settings is highly desired but not essential as the school provides thorough training. You will be working in a classroom-based setting alongside a class teacher and other Teaching Assistants.
