Cheadle Hulme, SK8 6RQ
£14,856 - £15,974
Expiry date:

Are you looking for a rewarding challenging role in a specialist SEN College for a charity?

Here at Seashell Trust we provide education and care for children and young adults with severe, profound and complex learning difficulties/disabilities, sensory impairments, communication disorders and autism. We’re different at Seashell Trust, some of the best children and young people in the country live here and we believe they deserve the best experience and chances in life.

We’re looking for talented and caring Learning Support Assistants who want to make a real difference, working on a one to one basis with our students, ranging from 19-25-years old, supporting their learning, and a range of other tasks they may need support with.

All we ask is for experience in teaching / learning support ideally within a SEN setting, educational environment, or in a care setting, however, this is not essential. We would be looking for the ability to feel comfortable working within the environment where our learners can present challenging behaviour (full training is provided) or may need support with personal care.

Why work for Seashell Trust?

On top of the rewarding work that we do, we’ve got some wonderful benefits which think makes us a little bit different, such as:

  • 8% Pension Scheme
  • Doggy Day-care/Grooming
  • Paid induction and ongoing training/development opportunities
  • Life Insurance
  • Onsite Yoga and Bootcamp
  • Free parking
  • Annual performance linked pay increases
  • Employee Engagement Forum
  • Refer A Friend Scheme
  • Beautiful campus and fantastic facilities all on one site including swimming pool and gym

We provide an excellent care environment that is safeguarded and committed to promoting learning, respect and independence, as well as dignity for all of our children and young adults.

This role will be working 35 hours per week 8:30am - 4pm and is a term time position.

As part of our safer recruitment policy, successful candidates will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS check (no cost) and full references will be taken.

We value our employees and recognise the need to recruit, retain and develop highly skilled and committed talent who share our vision and values!

We value diversity and are committed to equal opportunities. Disabled candidates who meet the minimum criteria on the person specification will be guaranteed an interview.

This charity is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults
