Patience and Empathy are 2 huge skills needed in this role, this role will take months to have a positive impact on the students you work with. Working with vulnerable autistic students, helping them decide their place in society and education.

There is huge focus on BTEC and AQA subjects, building trust is a huge part of this Learning Support Assistant role, the curriculum has to work for the students as a mainstream curriculum hasn't worked for these students.

This LSA role in a specialist SEMH school for boys aged 9-16 that have excluded from their mainstream education. There will be a plethora of reasons why each boy is in the school, they will have suffered different traumas and all different contexts. It's a case of forming relationships with the boys, over time. You may help plant ideas that you will not see the full, positive effects or end results from, know that they are there and will happen.
