The course is ideal for Teaching Assistants working in mainstream or specialist schools who want to achieve a recognised qualification whilst gaining additional support for the SEND responsibilities. Any Teaching Assistant in a school may undertake this programme, with the DfE recommending all schools having some form of SEND responsibilities or specialism. According to the Department for Education's 2020 publication, 'Special Educational Needs in England' approximately 15% of all students (age 3-19) had Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Of these students with SEND about 22% had statements or educational health care plans (EHCP). This highlights the growing need for support in the sector and the requirement for qualified Teaching Assistants within schools. LMP Education's Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship with SEND pathway offers a structured route to a rewarding career in SEND. The programme combines practical experience and theoretical knowledge to increase skills to effectively support students with SEND. This role will typically work with small groups of children with SEND to help them get the most out of classroom life and provide a positive impact on their learning outcomes. SEND Teaching Assistants provide individualised support, promote inclusion, and help students with SEND thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Progression includes becoming a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) with SEND Pathway. With further study you could become a fully qualified special educational needs or mainstream teacher.

This programme leads both to the Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship Level 3 and development of key SEND skillsets.
