SEN Support Assistant

Job description

A school in Central Leeds (LS9) are in need of someone to provide specialist 1-2-1 SEN support, beginning as soon as possible for a full time 1 year contract. 


  • Experience of SEND support
  • Experience with Primary aged children
  • Good behaviour management skills
  • Team Teach Qualification (or able to do this through Teaching Personnel)

A Primary School in LS9 have come to Teaching Personnel in search of an SEN Teaching Assistant to support a Year 2 child who has Autism. This child has an Educational Health Care Plan and needs full-time support when in school. The school are needing this 1-2-1 support to provide more specialist and tailored support.

The school’s only absolute requirement is that the candidate is experienced and confident in providing 1-2-1 SEN support. This is because the child has to be taken from class quite regularly and the member of staff must be trusted to handle this appropriately. 1-2-1 support in any capacity such as specialist SEN provisions, PRUs, the care industry or behavioural support would therefore go a long way of assuring the school in this case. Any experience specific to Autism or supporting children at this very formative age would also be a significant bonus to any candidate’s application. 

The school are looking for a Teaching Assistant with the Team Teach qualification. If you are interested but do not have this qualification Teaching Personnel can provide this training. 

If you are interested in this role please contact Charley Alexander at the Leeds Wakefield Primary branch on the contact details below or, register to Teaching Personnel online. 

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We offer all our registered candidates FREE child protection and prevent duty training. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
