Learning Support Assistant - SEMH job summary

Do you want to support students to aspire and achieve during their 5 year journey?

Do you want a rewarding career that makes a difference on future generations?

Do you want to be a part of an exciting period of change within SEND at Aldworth School?

If you have answered yes to these questions then the position of Learning Support Assistant - SEMH could be the perfect role for you.

The SEND department is a well-respected and supportive department who work collaboratively to support high quality learning for our students.

If you are thinking of a return to work, this role could be right for you. Or if you are considering teaching as a future career this would be a fantastic opportunity to work in a supportive school and gain some valuable experience. A number of previous appointments are now qualified teachers working in our school.

This is a role focused on supporting students with social, emotional and mental health needs. Experience working with students with SEMH or communication and interaction needs is desirable but not essential. This role is not the traditional in class support; every day will be different. You will be working with and coaching students both within mainstream lessons and in our ‘Pathways’ inclusion unit. You will develop a positive working relationship with your allocated students, enabling you to plan the best support for their academic and social progress. This could involve adjusting activities, daily check-ins, suggesting supporting strategies for staff, 1:1 interventions or other strategies.

In return we offer you:

  • A caring and supportive working environment within a vibrant school community
  • CPD and other training opportunities including development through the apprenticeship programme.
  • Child Care Voucher Scheme
  • A contributory Local government pension scheme
  • On site multi-gym available for staff use after school hours
  • On site parking
