Pertemps are currently working with a number of Alternate Provisions between Sudbury & Bury St Edmunds. We are looking to take on three Learning Support or Behaviour Specialists to start either immediately or in September 2021.

In addition, the successful SEN TA must have worked in either a PRU/ AP / SEN or Mainstream School (with lots of SEN pupils).
