Hello I'm looking for some advice. I would like to become a SEN Teaching Assistant. I have been a SAHM for 8 years and have a child with a Statement of Special Needs. I'm currently putting together a CV showing relevant experience, including supporting a blind friend, first aid courses etc and I plan to send this to local SEN schools hoping I will be able to volunteer. Is there anything other than enthusiasm that would help in getting my foot in the door? At the moment I just want to be accepted as a volunteer but realise that might not be as easy as it sounds. Any words of wisdom appreciated!
