Here at Seashell Trust we provide education and care for children and young people (up to 25 years old) with severe, profound and complex learning difficulties and disabilities, sensory impairment and communication disorders and autism.
We are recruiting for talented Learning Support Assistants for our specialist SEN College who want to make a real difference! The age range of our students is 19-25 years old. Experience in a teaching assistant/learning support role in an SEN environment is preferred but may not be essential. So if you are passionate about providing education, care and support, have the right attitude and share our values, then we’d like to hear from you!

About our 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!
