Learning support teachers focus on the provision of supplementary teaching to pupils who require additional help for Primary grade levels. They work with pupils in groups or one-to-one, either in the classroom or in a learning support room. Their work involves planning and implementing effective teaching strategies, liaising with parents, staff and other relevant professionals. They are closely linked with and may share duties with special educational needs teachers.
The work can be intensive as a lot of one-to-one tuition is required. Self-motivation, organization, creativity and enthusiasm are vital qualities in the role. The standard route into this area is to train as a mainstream teacher at primary level, then gain experience in mainstream teaching before obtaining a qualification in learning support.
