You will work as a teaching assistant with pupils with requirements such as ASD, ADD, ADHD and EBD. Your time will be split between the classroom and the school’s internal support provision unit.

You should have previous experience of working with pupils with SEN/SPLD. It is not essential that your experience has come from within schools. You may have supported pupils in other contexts – summer camps, tutoring, care homes…
