 Are you a Teaching Assistant or Learning Support Assistant experienced working with children & young adults with MLD / PMLD?

I am delighted to be representing a fantastic and dynamic Community Special school based in South Essex that provides education, and support for children and young people who have a range of complex needs ranging from MLD (Moderate Learning Difficulties) to PMLD (Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties.)

These organizations have a strong sense of care and compassion for people with MLD, SLD & PMLD learning disabilities, focusing on supporting and enabling people to develop their skills and participate in meaningful activities that reflect their abilities, wishes and needs.

We at Pertemps are looking to recruit 2 vibrant and engaging LSAs with proven experience to join their multi-disciplinary team for the minimum of 2 months. The successful applicant will be required to work with a range of ages (from 14 to 19) in small groups of 6 - 10 and will support children with MLD, PMLD and Autism.  The postholder will be expected to offer a level of personal care.

Many of the learners at these schools have difficulty with communication, are non-verbal and need high levels of support in all areas.  You must have experience of working with children and young adults requiring this level of care.

Applicants must have:
  • Previous SEND experience, working within an PMLD, SLD, MLD environment
  • A desire to help, support and nurture children who have various SEN
  • Experienced in supporting children who exhibit challenging behaviors
This in an amazing opportunity for the right person(s) who really wants to thrive in a warm and friendly atmosphere within a consistently Ofsted rated GOOD special school.
