• Assisting with the personal care needs of pupils
• Contributing to the wider life of the school, especially relating to extracurricular initiatives within the school

• Working alongside and advising learning support assistants

Other experience and qualifications which are preferable:
• Confidence in working with and communicating PEC's & Makaton

• A wide variety of different positions, both day to day and long term
• Continued support through all placements via a dedicated consultant
