Use our model job description and person specification to recruit your next learning support assistant (LSA), providing 1:1 support to an individual pupil. If your role is for a group of pupils, use our job description for an SEN teaching assistant instead. 

There are no specific statutory requirements for this role, so we've based it on the most common features that other schools include. 

You'll need to adapt it to suit your school’s context, needs and priorities.
