Are you a recent university graduate? Do you want to gain classroom experience before becoming a qualified educational psychologist?

A fantastic SEN school in Melksham are looking for a Learning Support Assistant (LSA) to help support and motivate their pupils with additional needs. The children in the school range from 5 to 18 and all have a range of additional needs. This may include Autism, ADHD, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, multi-sensory impairments and PMDL. The students therefore require an LSA who is understanding, empathetic and up for a challenge!

As a Learning Support Assistant, you will be provided with all the skills needed to undergo training as an Educational Psychologist in the future. Not only will you gain first-hand experience working with children with additional needs, you will also learn how to implement individualised support plans and learning strategies in the classroom in order for each child to reach their full potential. You will also be provided with the unique opportunity of shadowing the psychologist and therapist based on-site at the school and be able to learn from them ahead of your future career.

In this SEN school, no two days are the same. However, your general duties will involve working closely with a small group of SEN pupils in the classroom, supporting both their learning and emotional needs within the class. You will ensure each child stays on track with their work, meets their milestones, and help the class teacher to make the classroom a fun and exciting environment. Personal care, such as toileting and feeding may also be required. If you are looking for a rewarding career where you can help change the lives of vulnerable young people, then this is the role for you!

The ideal candidate will have a university degree (Psychology or Criminology would be perfect) and a C in GCSE Maths and English. Experience with SEN is desired but not essential.
