U-educate is working with a primary school in Eastleigh looking for two learning support assistants, one for Early Years, and one for their SEN class, who can bring a love of learning; help make each child’s task relevant and engaging; understand the ways in which behaviour communicates a message and who support children to achieve. The school is seeking people who are capable, cheerful, resilient and enthusiastic to work with our children and who have a particular interest or experience in Early Years, or working with children with SEMH. Anyone joining the school would need to demonstrate a commitment to inclusion.
In Early Years their dedicated team work together to ensure that they build good relationships with the children and provide a curriculum that adapts to their needs and interests. This enables our children to work towards our Early Years Aspirations of all children becoming Imaginative Story Tellers, Collaborative Creators, Resilient problem solvers and resourceful learners.
The school are very proud of their SEN class, which is their resourced provision for pupils with Social Emotional and Mental Health difficulties. Their policy is to integrate these pupils into their mainstream classes as often as possible, supported where necessary by the SEN Team. Although prior experience is useful, the 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. The school will also offer training in Team Teach. Your role will be to support pupils to access learning within mainstream classes, whilst delivering SEMH interventions 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 well-equipped learning support assistant.
Please do state which role you would be going for when applying.
If you feel you can make that difference to an array of different students whilst wanting to continue your personal development please apply or contact Matt.
