Special Needs Teacher & Teaching Assistant Jobs

Special Needs Teacher, SENCO, Residential Support Workers, LSA & Teaching Assistant Jobs throughout the UK.

Many of our support roles are for special needs teachers and teaching assistant jobs, in a variety of settings (within special educational needs schools, residential settings or with small groups of pupils in mainstream schools requiring moderate types of special assistance). These can include social, emotional and mental health, physical/mobility difficulties, PMLD, autism, SLD and many more.

TeacherActive builds relationships with both schools and our teachers and support staff, our aim being to get a complete picture of what both parties require to ensure that every placement is the best possible fit for all.

We’re very proud of our approach to special needs education recruitment as we deliver for the child or children’s needs: what they require is at the heart of every placement we make. This means that alongside qualified special needs teachers and teaching assistants, we also recruit some less qualified individuals who are a “right fit” for this kind of work on a personal, emotional and ethical level and have the skills necessary to make the transition into SEND education roles.

If you are interested in special education but do not have any formal experience or qualifications, feel free to call our consultants in the location that suits you best (see all our offices here). Our consultants will be happy to give you any advice and tips on how to approach applying for special educational needs vacancies and which ones might be the best fit for you.

So if you are looking for special needs teacher, SENCO or teaching assistant jobs or support roles, either in mainstream or special schools, TeacherActive is the agency for you.
