This is an exciting opportunity to work within the college’s SEND Support Team as a senior member of the LSA team, supporting all of our students with SEND to achieve their full potential, and line managing a team of LSAs.

Successful candidates for this post will be experienced LSAs or Teaching Assistants, who have a broad range of experience supporting young people within an educational environment, and are looking for the next step in their career.

You will be highly self-motivated, an excellent team player and quick at building relationships with others and problem solving. Ideally, you will have some experience of the EHCP Annual Review process and understand its purpose in ensuring that students make progress towards their educational outcomes.
