I have four years experience of working hands-on in SEN, EBD and mainstream schools ranging across primary, secondary and infant assessment centres. I have recently successfully applied for a full-time LSA position at a secondary EBD school in Liverpool and am soon due to begin an Open University degree alongside this in Childhood and Youth studies focusing on 13-19 year olds with complex behaviour issues.
I am a hard-working, confident young woman with a passion for caring for young people and am never without a smile. I try to be as honest as possible and my approach is an amalgamation of many techniques. I understand that the opinions of everyone will never be unanimous however I try to be as fair as possible with my research and strategies in order to come to a professional decision.
Area Covered: Current position. Approach.
Work Experience Summary: My current position is as a learning support assistant in an EBD secondary school in Liverpool. My main duties include: learning support and ensuring pupil safety at all times in and out of the learning environment, recording behavioural issues at the end of each week onto the school system, actively supervising pupils during breaks, trips out and other non-teaching times including movement between lessons. I have also had plenty of experience working on the residential side of the school.
My previous position was working on a one-to-one basis with a child who had severe learning difficulties and unpredictable violent outbursts. I believe that this is testimony to the fact that I am a tireless worker and this experience has enabled me to understand that anything could happen in an environment such as this. I have plenty of experience with children on the Autistic Spectrum thanks to my previous LSA positions at primary schools, Assessment centres and numerous others. Over a three year period I have worked with children that had difficulties such as Downes Syndrome, Asperges Syndrome, Fragile X, Dyslexia and Epilepsy plus many others, all of which I am confident in managing. I have also worked with young people with physical disabilities and so I am thoroughly experienced in the use of hoists and wheelchairs.
Education Summary: I am fluent in British Sign Language and have completed my DCRT training in the positive care and handling of pupils.
