What to expect from a SEN job?
As a Class Teacher, you will be required to teach a class of children with specific needs, always with the support of at least one learning support assistant. Work will often be set for you; however, it is always a good idea to have your own resources at hand.
As a Learning Support Assistant, supply work is always interesting, and no two days will ever be the same, and it is such a rewarding role. You will mainly be responsible for supporting the class teacher, either whole class or working with small groups of children, and quite often, you may be asked to provide 1:1 support. You will be expected to be patient and caring with each and every child to develop a trusting class environment. Always make sure you ask the teacher for support if needed, and be as proactive as possible.
