Job Details

Are you an experienced LSA looking for new opportunities in alternative provision?

We are honoured to be working in partnership with a number of Alternative Provisions in Essex and Suffolk including SEN Specialist Schools and PRUs who are looking for new staff from January 2019.
We are looking for experienced LSAs with excellent communication skills and the ability to engage & inspire young people who demonstrate extremely challenging behaviour.

You will work with a range of ages and the work will depend on the age of the children and their individual needs, but you must:

  • have recent and excellent experience delivering Primary Curriculum, Secondary Core subjects, Functional Skills or Enrichment Subjects
  • experience of teaching young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs or autism (ASC)
  • be an effective communicator
  • be able to work flexibly to meet the needs of individuals within the group
  • have a thorough understanding of differentiation within the classroom
  • be able to provide a calm and positive presence
You will have experience working with learners with extreme behavioural difficulties.

We work with a number of provisions regularly and there are opportunities available for an experienced LSA for both short term and long term supply as well as Permanent posts starting both this term and from January 2019
Alternative provision (AP) is education outside of school for pupils who do not attend mainstream school for reasons such as school exclusion, behaviour issues, school refusal, or short or long term illness.

It includes settings such as pupil referral units (PRU), although some pupils who are on the roll of a PRU will also attend other forms of alternative provision off-site.

The primary activity of these schools is the provision of individualised education to young people with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs or Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (EBD) who are at risk of exclusion or have been excluded from their mainstream school.

If you have a passion for working with young people with complex SEMH needs, you are an experienced LSAs and you are committed to making a difference to their lives via Education we would love to hear from you.

Please give Sam Bay a call on 01245 392 580 if you would like to have a confidential chat about the role of experienced LSA and the opportunities available.

The Education Network only works within the education sector; therefore we understand the impact our service has on our schools. We believe our teachers should positively contribute to the schools development. We continue to provide an excellent service with a commitment to building long lasting relationships with our teachers.

The Education Network is committed to Safer Recruitment and recruits to Compliance+ standards. Any appointment will be subject to an enhanced DBS check in addition to other safeguarding checks. The Education Network is an equal opportunities employer. The Education Network is acting as a recruitment agency in relation to this vacancy.
