We are seeking to employ an engaging and motivating Learning Support Assistant. You will need to have a good general education with sound literacy, numeracy and IT skills to be able to provide support to students across all subjects. Knowledge and experience of working with students who display challenging behaviour is desirable and you will need to have a willingness to learn and extend your knowledge regarding autism. You will also need patience, understanding and commitment, but above all, you will be sincere with a genuine desire to help young people.
This secondary specialist provision is aimed at educating and developing children who, due to their autism, find a mainstream school setting a huge challenge. The Resourced Provision provides a challenging and appropriate academic provision and environment, whilst developing students’ individual social and communication skills. The role within the Resourced Provision is also one which supports sensory, communication and anxiety difficulties and any associated challenging behaviours where a calm and positive approach is needed.
Although experience and qualifications will be an advantage, first and foremost we wish to appoint the right person to complement our team. The right person should be enthusiastic, dedicated, have a “can do” attitude and a good sense of humour is essential!
An induction and training in post and professional development to support you within your role will be provided
