The Milestone School is part of SAND Academies Trust and is an outstanding school for pupils with a range of special needs, aged 3-16, based in Gloucester.

We are looking to appoint Casual Learning Partners to join our bank of supply staff. The successful applicants should have a passion for working with pupils who have special educational needs and disabilities, which include severe learning difficulties; physical difficulties; profound and multiple learning difficulties; severe autism and challenging behaviours. The main purpose of the Learning Partner is to support teaching and learning within classes.

Please note that the post of Casual Learning Partner is an agreement and not a contract. There is no obligation for the school to provide work, or for the postholder to be available for work. Supply staff are usually contacted by text from 7.15am to check if available to cover staff absences that day. If booked, Casual Learning Partners will be required to work between the hours of 9.15am and 3.15pm term time only, and will be able to claim a maximum daily total of 5.5 hours per day (staff receive a 30 minute unpaid lunch break).

Supply staff are required to always bring in swimming kit and must be prepared to assist pupils in the swimming pool.

What the school offers its staff

Salary is paid one month in arrears. It is the responsibility of the postholder to record the hours/days worked and to submit an authorised claim form to SAND HR Department on the last working day of each month.

The closing date and time for all applications is 12:00 noon on Monday 28th November 2022 and the interview date is on Wednesday 7th December. We regret that to reduce administration costs, you will only be contacted if you are selected for an interview, therefore, applicants who have not heard of the progress of their application within 2 weeks of the closing date should assume that they have not been shortlisted.
