Job Published: 8 months ago

Are you a superwoman or a superman just without the cape?

Do you have the passion to inspire and help children learn?

Do you want to do a job that is rewarding and fun?

A learning support assistant's job is a key role within schools and you can make that difference.

Depending on the age of the children and their individual needs, you would:
·Help with schoolwork under the supervision of the teacher
·Prepare learning materials
·Help children understand instructions
·Carry out a child's care plan
·Encourage children to communicate
·Give information and help to teachers
·Support children during social activities and outings
·Help children during therapy sessions
·Look after children's physical needs
·Keep records
You would need to be patient and sensitive. You would comfort the children when they are upset and encourage them to be confident and independent. But sometimes it would be necessary to be firm.
You could work in a special school that supports children with severe or complex disabilities, or with an individual pupil or small group of pupils in a mainstream class.
If this sounds like you I would love to hear from you.
