Candidate SEND | Smart Teachers

Whatever SEND work you choose, we will always…

Find the role that is best for you - by taking into consideration your specific needs, skills, experience, location, availability, type of school you want to work in and anything else you may be looking for.


With us, you’ll find plenty of SEND teaching opportunities across different schools, colleges and other alternative provisions. You will play a key role in identifying individual needs and creating a safe, stimulating, and supportive learning environment for pupils with a range of physical disabilities, learning and language difficulties and social, emotional and mental health needs.

Support staff

We have many types of support staff roles in SEND, that provide smaller group or one-to-one support for those pupils who need more dedicated time and assistance. From behaviour support worker, youth engagement mentor, autism support worker or personal care assistant, these roles help pupils experience and embrace learning with the right support so they can flourish.


Provide leadership and professional guidance in the area of SEND, whether it’s for a school, college or other alternative provision. Use your compassion and experience to excel in your next role as head teacher or as you progress to assistant head teacher, and let our experienced team find you a role that will support your leadership career.

staff say about us

Honestly, I feel valued and taken care of. They totally understand what I need and they are always available no matter what. Working with Smart Teachers in London, I don't feel like I need to change to any other agency.
