Special needs education (SEN) recruitment


Sugarman Education sources experienced teachers, teaching assistants and support teams to work alongside children and young adults with special education needs (SEN). We understand the unique challenges, needs and required skills in this specialist area. Our dedicated recruitment consultants are committed to providing personalised support to ensure you find the right SEN staff for your school.


When you partner with us, your consultant will work closely with you to gain a thorough understanding of the roles you need to fill and your specific requirements. We take the time to learn about your school’s culture, values, and preferred options, allowing us to match you with candidates who are not only qualified but also align with your vision and goals.


Our extensive network of teaching staff enables us to provide schools with a diverse range of candidates who are passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of students with additional learning needs.

SEN Teachers

Our pool of SEN teachers consists of experienced professionals who are dedicated to supporting the diverse needs of students with special educational needs. They have the expertise to create inclusive and supportive learning environments, adapt curriculum content, and provide tailored support to help every student reach their full potential.


SEN Teaching Assistants

Our SEN teaching assistants play a vital role in providing one-on-one support and assistance to students with additional needs in the classroom. They work closely with teachers to implement individualised education plans, facilitate peer interactions, and provide emotional and behavioural support to ensure all students can access the curriculum and participate fully in school life.


Specialist Support Staff

In addition to teachers and teaching assistants, we are fortunate to have a pool of exceptional support staff, including Therapists, OT’s, Physios, Speech and Language Therapists, whose experience includes PECS, Makaton, Team Teach, Manual Handling, Personal Care, BSL and working alongside IEPs.

In addition to teachers and wider support teams, we are experienced in recruiting for Education Welfare Officers, Educational Psychologists and Social Workers.

These professionals bring specialised expertise and training to address specific needs and challenges faced by students with special needs, ensuring they receive the comprehensive support they need to thrive.

Flexible SEN staffing solutions


Whether schools require long-term positions, permanent employment, or short-term cover for absences or maternity leave, we have candidates available to meet their staffing needs. Our flexible staffing solutions ensure continuity of learning and support for students with SEN, allowing schools to provide the highest quality of education and care.


Our SEN recruitment process is rigorous to ensure we only recruit the highest calibre individuals. We hold face to face interviews and offer free CPD courses to all candidates.


We have the option to provide Sole Provider Status – please discuss with one of our consultants how we can reduce your costs with our Sole Provider Package. You can contact us by clicking here.
