Learning Support Assistant job vacancy in Somerset, Temporary position

Inclusion in schools can be a challenge. Students are faced with massively varied barriers to participating in learning, which end up affecting their life chances. Those whose barrier is their behaviour can suffer from a lack of inclusion more than many, and often face exclusion from school as a consequence of their behaviour.

An alternative provision in Somerset caters specifically for students who have been excluded from mainstream schools because of barriers that have been put up after some kind of trauma. This trauma can be inflicted by students themselves, their families, or their peers, and can result in behaviour which can make access to learning incredibly difficult.

Inclusion is at the core of this school's ethos, and a student has never been permanently excluded. We are helping to support the recruitment of casual/bank learning support assistants to help support the work that they are doing to overcome these barriers to participation. The school runs a large proportion of its lessons outside, and tries to avoid a traditional classroom setting wherever possible. Most of the teaching is done on a 1:1 basis, so that students individual needs can be catered for, unlike in a mainstream school where they can be lost in the noise of 30 others.

For this role you must have access to your own transport as, this school is split over several bases and you may be required to travel between each site.
