Disability and Learning Support

We are currently recruiting casual support staff to work in schools supporting students with a range of intellectual & physical disabilities.

About the Opportunities

Special educational needs (SEN) schools are diverse in nature. They provide educational programs to students with a range of needs including intellectual & physical disabilities, health impairments & medical needs, autism spectrum disorders,  hearing impairments, visual impairments, language & communication disorders, and social, emotional & behavioural needs. 

These schools have a strong focus on personalised and individual learning for each student and promote a caring and supportive environment for all. 

We partner closely with SEN schools and with experienced support staff, coordinating casual relief and contract work as required, both on the day and in advance. These opportunities are within school hours (8:30- 3:30), Monday to Friday.
