Are you looking to further your career into SEND? Do you want to work in SEND but need more experience?

Are you a graduate? Are you a carer? Are you a teaching assistant or support worker looking for a new


If so, Empowering Learning Ltd are recruiting individuals who are keen to move their career into SEND but require

more experience to secure the right role. We are conducting a voluntary program for schools and candidates where a candidate can spend one week in a school on a voluntary basis in a SEND setting. At the end of that week, the school will provide a reference which indicates progress and experience within SEND that will help you with future positions in the field. It will also give you the experience and knowledge of what sector of SEND you want to specialize in; and more than often if the school is happy with your work, they may keep you on for

a paid position or request you back at some point!

This scheme is a great way to get your foot in the door with schools and to also give you the experience you need

to pursue your career in SEND.

I currently have a school in Merton who are keen to find some dedicated and hardworking volunteers to come

in for a week and support either the ASD unit or the Speech and Language Unit. The volunteers will be taken into consideration for the upcoming support vacancies in the SEND departments.

In addition to this, when working with Empowering

Learning Ltd you will benefit from:

  • Dedicated consultant committed to finding the right role and setting for you
  • Competitive rates of pay, depending on experience £68-£80 a day
  • A fast clearance process, most of which can be accessed online
  • Gain in experience and opportunities offered
