Help in the classroom as a supply Learning Support Assistant

This is an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of children with special educational needs and disabilities. 

Learning Support Assistants (LSA) work alongside teachers and help teach skills to individual pupils. You'll be someone who likes children and young people and is willing to be responsible both for helping them learn, but also for their safety and wellbeing. Supply staff help us cover in cases of staff sickness or where we simply need some additional support for our pupils.

It's not always an easy job, but it offers huge job satisfaction. You'll be part of a supportive team and we'll teach you how. Whitefield is noted for its staff training and professional development. 

We're looking for caring, patient people who really want to help children get the best from life by covering for learning support assistants, If you are prepared to be called in for this rewarding work on a day-by-day basis, you could make a real difference to the education of children with a variety of difficulties and disabilities.

Pay and hours

‘Supply’ LSAs earn £11 per hour.  There are no guaranteed work hours – if your application is successful you'll join our pool of experience supply staff who we know we can call on. If possible we'll give you advanced notice that you are needed, but sometimes it will be a question of us calling you in the morning to ask if you are available that day.
