SEND Support & Teaching Jobs

justteachers has a wide range of SEND support and teaching roles for specialists who can demonstrate a good understanding of subject knowledge. Whilst ideally suitable candidates would have prior 1-to-1 experience / SEND support background within an alternative provision setting, some of our SEND schools are keen to hear about candidates who have transferrable skills gained from the following settings and who are possibly looking for a career change:

  • Conceptual development and communication skills
  • Pre-reading, reading, pre-maths and maths

"When it comes to teaching agencies to sign up with I strongly urge you to look no further than Justteachers.  I thought I was a bit demanding looking for part –time and flexible SEN teaching roles.  Within a few days of signing up I met with Megan, and she was back on the phone within a day or so having lined up a trial day for me, which was a success.

Megan soon informed me that the school I was placed in were happy with my work and wanted me to work more.  This was so pleasing and really lifted my confidence levels.  I was even more pleased when Megan suggested that if I was successful at interview that the school would take me on a more permanent basis.  So here I am now working for the school and 2 months after I am still in contact with Megan.”
