We are looking for a dynamic and dedicated individual to work as a Learning Support Assistant. In this role, you will work closely with children and young people aged 3 to 19 who have a diverse range of learning difficulties and disabilities.

Your responsibilities may entail working on either of our campuses in collaboration with class teachers. You will play a vital role in assisting students with severe and complex needs, facilitating their learning journey. This includes providing support during lessons, assisting with activities such as swimming, supervising playtime and lunch breaks, and contributing to the creation of teaching resources and displays.

Graded as 'outstanding' by Ofsted, Columbus is a leading all-age special school for children and young people aged 3-19 with severe and profound learning difficulties based in Chelmsford, Essex. We deliver an outstanding education to students in our impressive, purpose-built environment across two campuses with some of the highest quality learning environments in the country for children with complex needs.

Columbus School and College provides a broad and ambitious curriculum that is profoundly focused on preparing learners for the future. We have high expectations of learners' progress across the key areas of communication and interaction; cognition and learning; sensory, physical health and development; social, emotional and mental health; and self help and independence. Each learner has a personalised curriculum closely related to their education, health and care plan (EHCP). The curriculum is designed through collaboration with parents and carers and, as necessary, other professionals and specialists.

We want children to be excited about coming to school and love learning. We want them to be motivated and challenged. Most of all, we want all our children to know they can be successful and feel proud of their achievements.

If you have the drive and determination to ensure students make progress and you firmly believe that you can improve and enhance their experience, your application would be most welcomed!

Closing date: 15th February 2024
