Students with special educational needs (SEN) often need a bit more support when it comes to their education. There are a variety of options for SEN students, including extra services in mainstream school, specialist SEN schools and secure units.
Staff in mainstream schools where children have been identified as having SEN or requiring additional support has been an increasingly fast growing job sector. Teaching Personnel provides both short and long-term candidates to cover absences or increase headcount demand.
In addition, regular opportunities are available for behaviour support workers, specialist teachers and support staff, and teachers for one-to-one or small group learning.
These types of roles are particularly important for SEN students, as these staff can offer students the additional attention they require and support them with their learning to ensure that they do not fall behind their peers.
Teaching and support staff in SEN schools tend to work with much smaller classes than in mainstream school, so there is usually a much higher staff to student ratio.
SEN schools tend to focus on one or a small sector of student needs. Types of schools available include those for social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and short stays for children that can't be in mainstream school due to exclusions, health/injury, school phobias and school refusers.
In addition, SEN schooling is available for those with an autistic spectrum condition, profound and multiple learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties and young offenders.
