SEN teacher roles and responsibilities


As an SEN teacher, you’ll have the opportunity to inspire students, create engaging learning experiences, and contribute to the development of inclusive and supportive school communities.


In SEN schools, teachers work with students who have a range of special educational needs, including autism, learning disabilities, and communication difficulties. They use their expertise and creativity to adapt teaching methods and resources to meet the unique needs of each student.


As an SEN teacher, your responsibilities encompass a wide range of duties aimed at ensuring every student has the opportunity to reach their full potential. You’ll collaborate closely with other professionals, including teaching assistants, therapists, and specialists, to address the unique learning needs of each student. This involves adapting teaching strategies, resources, and assessments to accommodate diverse learning styles and abilities. Additionally, SEN teachers provide ongoing assessment, monitoring, and feedback to track student progress and make necessary adjustments to support their development.

Hear from our teachers

“I have been with Sugarman Education since the summer. I run my own business and have some time between clients that I like to fill with another source of income. I’m also passionate about working in SEN and working with Sugarman Education has allowed me to use my experience from previous roles to work in rewarding environments. This is also, in large part, thanks to Kevin and his hard work. I feel incredibly lucky to have Kevin helping me find bookings and getting regular work in places I find enjoyable. He has gone out of his way to help me and work around my schedule. I would highly recommend Sugarman to those looking for agency work in the educational sector.”

One of my consultants is Sara. She is amazing and speaks to me in a friendly manner. She is always willing to help, I feel like she has really listened to me and worked hard to get me work in schools in my area. I really look forward to working with them in the future. Definitely recommended!”
