Graduate Teaching Assistant/Learning Support Assistant- South East London

Are you a recent graduate with an interest in developing your experience in working with students with additional needs? Are you creative, from an acting, musical or sports background and need flexible work around your other commitments? If so, I want to hear from you!

The schools I work with are looking for resilient, outgoing graduates who are going to be present, engaging and enthusiastic about the support work they do within schools, when they are present. In return, they are happy to offer flexibility to allow people to audition and work in their preferred field when the opportunity arises.

The schools we work with are SEND specialist provisions for students with additional needs. The work is demanding and varied, but also rewarding.
