Learning Support Assistant

Teaching Personnel are looking to recruit a Learning Support Assistant to support a SEMH provision in Blackburn. The school caters for 10-16-year-olds with complex SEMH difficulties and ASC; therefore, many children who attend the school display challenging behaviours.

As many children who attend this school are often disengaged from education, the school has a broad and varied curriculum. Therefore, the successful candidate should be able to cultivate this interest and ensure to remain positive even in difficult situations.

Previous experience supporting children with SEMH/Challenging behaviour is desirable, however, the applicant must have a desire to support pupils with additional needs and in wanting to raise their attainment and social skills.

This is a fulltime role from 8:00am - 3:30 pm Monday to Friday.
