Female Learning Support Assistant (LSA) to support a female student with physical needs, in main stream school.
Are you looking for a new challenge, perhaps specializing in working with students with physical needs? My client are a successful and highly inclusive school with a dedicated, supportive and forward-thinking team of learning support assistants.
My client is an academic, aspirational learning community, known and respected for our pioneering spirit, our humanity and our excellent outcomes
In addition to supporting students' learning, your duties may include: tending to students' personal needs, including toileting, physiotherapy, dressing and mobility; assisting with manual handling, including the use of specialist equipment; and working with therapists to ensure all appropriate therapy is delivered.
We wish to appoint colleagues who:
• have excellent interpersonal and organisational skills
• are able to work effectively as part of a team
• have experience of, or interest in, supporting students with physical needs
• are able to work full time, 34 hours per week
The position would suit those seeking a longer term post working with teenagers in a supportive role in a stimulating environment and those considering a teaching career (opportunities exist, for suitable candidates, to be sponsored for teacher training in the future) wishing to gain experience in a mainstream secondary school.
The school is in beautiful new £50m buildings overlooking the Green Belt. It is easily accessible from Northern, Piccadilly and Overground rail links, public buses run past the entrance and a school coach service (available to staff) serves our whole catchment area. We attract students from eloquent and supportive communities across North London and Hertfordshire. We have approval for an additional building, allowing us to expand our intake to 2017 per cohort, in response to significant long-term over-subscription. We expect to start building this academic year.
