Supporting Pupils with Special Educational Needs

Teaching Personnel has grown to be the market leader in England and Wales when providing qualified and unqualified education staff to work in the special needs sector. The opportunities and type of work available in the SEN sector are diverse and cross mainstream schools, special schools and alternative providers. At Teaching Personnel there is always a large demand from our client schools for experienced staff for SEN roles as well as a constant need for candidates seeking their first support role and experience in a classroom setting.

Many of our SEN teachers and support staff started and continue their careers in mainstream primary and secondary schools. However, having been exposed to the SEN sector through Teaching Personnel work assignments, a number are able to develop their careers in specialist SEN schools and facilities. Our branches have specialist SEN consultants or teams of consultants that will liaise closely with mainstream and special schools to identify staff and vacancies for those looking for a rewarding and challenging career.

Mainstream schools, special schools and alternative providers for the special needs sector are seeking staff who can make a difference to both the learning and life experience for their children and this does not always mean a formal qualification is needed. Getting the right teacher or teaching assistant to match the needs of the child or class is essential and our specialist Recruitment Consultants work with key decision makers at schools and the local authorities to make sure this happens on every assignment.

To ensure our specialist Recruitment Consultants best understand each school's staffing needs they will often work as a Teaching Assistant for a day or part day at one of their clients. This is one of a number of ways we make sure we offer the right assignment to every candidate.
