EdEx support both inexperienced Graduates and experienced SEN Teaching Assistants/Learning Support Assistants in securing Support Staff positions working with SEN children. We have supported countless Graduate (Psychology in particular) in securing long-term support staff roles before they then progressed onto their chosen field. A lot of our Graduates are now qualified Educational Psychologists, Clinical Psychologists, Therapists, Support Workers, Teachers and more!
Supporting SEN & Mental Health is a huge part of what we do. The vast majority of Support Staff positions in schools are to help children with SEN (Special Educational Needs) who require additional support to access the learning, whether that’s learning in a different setting, supporting behaviour or perhaps aiding a child with a physical need/impairment, the role of an SEN Teaching Assistant can be incredibly diverse.
We have placed excellent candidates into support staff roles where they have worked with a wide-variety of disabilities and conditions including:
- Autism (ASD) and Asperger’s (AS)
- ADHD and Behavioural Difficulties
- Global Delay Syndrome (GDD)
- Speech & Language Difficulties
- Deaf & Blind
- PMLD (Profound & Multiple Learning Difficulties)
We work with a wide-variety of clients, ranging from mainstream primary and secondary schools to SEN schools, specialists units, alternative provisions and even virtual schools ran by the local council.
Whether you’re a recent graduate interested seeking that “Stepping stone” placement or an experienced Teaching Assistant looking for a new challenge, we can help!
