An informed approach to Special Educational Needs

We have many years of experience serving special schools, pupil referral units, mainstream schools and other educational establishments that take care of children with Special Educational Needs. Our SEN recruitment specialists have a sophisticated understanding of the skills that these establishments need on hand, and their intricate matrix of pastoral, educational and legal obligations. 

We select and provide staff who recognise: 

  • The need for pupils to have continuity in their learning environment
  • The requirements of pupils with special and often challenging needs
  • The significant benefits for all pupils of learning with a carefully-matched teacher or teaching assistant
