What is the difference between a LSA and a LSP?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by freckles88, Mar 12, 2012.

  1. I know one is a learning support assistant and the other a practitoner but what is the actual difference?
    I
    always thought that a TA/LSA/LSP is one in the same thing but I am
    applying for a job as a LSP and want to know if there is anything
    specific in case they ask me about it at interview. I am assuming that
    maybe it is just a little more invlolved than a LSA and more 1:1 based??
    I am currently classed as a TA but I work 1:1 with a SEN child so
    really I should probably be classed more as a LSA than a general TA as I
    don't do much general TA things (i.e. classroom displays, reading with
    children etc) as my whole job centres around one child...
    Is there anyone here who is a LSP and how does your job differ from that of a LSA or TA? Thanks :)
