We are looking for capable, cheerful, resilient and enthusiastic people to work part time within our Jarjums team; our learning support team within our resourced provision for pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs. Although prior experience is useful, we can train you in managing behaviour; help you to develop strategies for supporting social and emotional needs and enable you to deliver programmes of support. We will also offer training in Team Teach physical intervention strategies. Your role will be to support pupils to access learning within mainstream classes, whilst being able to meet their individual needs at other times of the day.
This is an ideal opportunity for someone who is looking to gain skills working with children, prior to undertaking a role in child psychology or teaching for example. We are also looking for people who would like to broaden their career within this field, learning to be a highly skilled learning support assistant.
There will be regular opportunities to gain experience within our secondary pilot resourced provision at nearby Crestwood College, Cherbourg campus too.
The role will be for a Level 1 or Level 2 post, dependent on experience and ability to fulfil the person specification. Hours are part-time and up to 20 hours, but there may be opportunities for additional hours. This is a fixed term post from September 2018 until August 2019.
