What skills and experience we're looking for

We require a Student Support Assistant to join our Learning Support Department as soon as possible. The purpose of the role is to support students who need extra help to access the curriculum fully, both in the classroom, as part of smaller intervention groups and also during exams. This will involve liaising closely with subject teachers. Most of the students will be on the Special Educational Needs Register and will have a wide range of profiles. You will need to be good humoured, resilient and enjoy working with young people aged 13-18.

This post provides the opportunity to accompany students on educational visits and to play a full part in the extra-curricular life of the school. In addition, as part of our commitment to personal and professional development, postholders will participate in a weekly training programme alongside teachers and classroom-based support staff.
