As part of the ongoing development of the College they are now seeking Learning Support Assistants to work flexibly, collaboratively and take specific responsibilities under the direction of a teacher to deliver education and training to learning disabled students. They are looking for individuals to be a key person in supporting their students who will inspire and encourage them through the transition from school and delivering the students stated outcomes to enable them to participate in independent living and working.

They are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff to share this commitment. For this post, pre-employment checks will be carried out, references will be sought and successful candidates will need to undertake an enhanced DBS check.

They offer a competitive salary, full training and on-going support in your role so you can achieve your career ambitions as well as a company pension and a staff discount scheme.
