Learning Support Assistant urgently required in Wakefield.
Maze Recruitment Group is currently working with a secondary school in Wakefield who are looking to recruit a Learning Support Assistant to work one to one and in small groups with students who require additional support. This is a short term contract, however due to increase in demand for LSA’s across Wakefield and Leeds we have a range of other assignments readily available for the successful applicant to follow onto.
Maze Recruitment Group have been working with schools in West Yorkshire for over 17 years and are a first tier provider to many schools of their day to day and long term assignments.
The Schools we work with are a mixture of larger, busy and sometimes challenging schools and quieter, smaller schools with a variety of different needs. Candidates must be able to provide a recent reference working in a school in a similar position and LSAs must have experience of working with Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities with secondary aged students.
There are 6th Form units attached to some of these schools so experience working with older children may also be advantageous.
A strong ability to manage behaviour and experience of working with PMLD and Autism and with children who need personal care would be advantageous as would training in peg feeding, although this is not essential.
Additional Special Needs Qualifications such as Team Teach would also be beneficial.
Working with Maze Recruitment Group you will have access to a range of benefits including:
- A dedicated consultant with a wealth of experience within the education sector.
- Fair pay for your hard work.
- Access to supplementary bonus.
- Access to personalised services and resources, such as coaching, strengthening personal resilience training etc.
Our candidates are more than just a number, they are the foundation of what we do.
