What are we looking for?
We are recruiting for talented SEN Learning Support Assistants for our specialist College who want to make a real difference! The age range of our students is 18-25 years old and we have opportunities on our specialised courses supporting ASC, PMLD and complex Sensory needs. Experience in a classroom teaching assistant role in a SEN environment is preferred but may not be essential. So if you are passionate about providing learning, care and support, promoting independence and have the right attitude and share our values, then we’d like to hear from you!
What are the roles?
• These are term time permanent roles and will involve providing daily learning, personal care and support for our students inside the classroom and on site. Some students may present challenging behaviour, so similar experience is advantageous but not essential.
• These are physically demanding roles with a requirement to keep up with the active students who like to run, push wheelchairs, use the adapted bikes and go in the swimming pool.
What are the benefits?
• Pension scheme, on site gym, online retail and leisure discounts, doggy day care/grooming, employee assistance programme, cycle to work scheme, childcare vouchers, and free parking!
• We have performance related pay reviews and offer good career development and training opportunities.
