SEND Learning Support Workers - Post 19 Provision ‘Routes 4 Life’

30 hours per week, 40 weeks per year

Grade: APTC 3 Point 14 or possibly APTC 4 Point 18.

To Start: September 2018

 

Due to our exciting new expansion we are looking for learning support workers passionate about developing life skills & community interaction for SEND learners in our new 19 – 25 provision ‘Routes 4 Life’.

We are looking to recruit individuals from an educational or adult support background with experience of working with young adults with SEND. You will need to be able to use initiative and problem solving skills to help young learners gain further independence as you will be expected to work 1-1 in the community as well as at our provision. 

This is a successful school with a supportive leadership, staff team and governors with very special children and young people. We are seeking to appoint learning support workers to support students (sometimes 1:1) in our Post 19 setting. A first aid qualification would be desirable but not essential.

 

 A Learning Support Assistant at Routes 4 Life will have:

  • Experience and knowledge of working with learners with a wide range of abilities
  • Secure knowledge and skills relating to strategies in working with learners with Complex Learning Needs
  • An interest, motivation and passion for working with SEND and developing skills to facilitate this
  • Ability to self-evaluate learning needs and actively seek learning opportunities
  • Calm, controlled and effective communication and relate well to all learners and adults within the school
  • The ability to reflect on own behaviour to ensure teams are strong and working together to meet the needs of all learners
  • Ability to work constructively as part of a team, understanding roles and responsibilities and your own position within this
  • A high level of professionalism and the ability to distinguish personal and professional boundaries in school related relationships both in and outside of the school
  • Level 2 (GCSE) Qualifications in English and Maths
  • An aptitude for understanding and/or working knowledge of specialist ICT software (Clicker 6, Communicate In Print, MS Office, 2 Simple, Active Inspire/Smartboard) to support pupil’s learning
  • Be willing to develop a full working knowledge, understanding and adherence to relevant school polices, practice and procedures

The school is firmly committed to the development of its staff and for exceptional candidates, would contribute to the financial support of progression through degree qualifications to QTS that complement the work of the school (e.g. Education, Psychology, or a Communication related subject).
