Job description
Protocol Education are recruiting SEN Learning Support Assistants for a permanent position starting in the new academic year of September 2018. The school is in South Bristol and caters for children who, for many reasons, are unable to access mainstream schools. The school has a good Ofsted rating and pride themselves in being reflective and gaining a deeper understanding into student behaviour.
Candidates will preferably have experience working with SEN, challenging behaviour or training. Work will be during school hours and will consist of both 1:1 and group support sessions. This represents a fantastic opportunity to develop your career in education and to build those beneficial relationships between students, families and the school.

The successful candidate will:
*Be enthusiastic and flexible with a very "hands-on" approach
*Be prepared to get involved with school life and make a positive contribution to the school
*Have high standards of personal presentation
*Possess a positive and helpful attitude
*Have first class communication skills
*Be passionate about making a difference
*Have an understanding of student behaviour

The successful candidates are likely to have worked in schools previously, have experience within SEN or perhaps be a graduate undertaking a gap year prior to taking a PGCE in Sept 18.

Opportunity available:
This opportunity will begin September 2018 upon successful completion of safeguarding checks, references and clearing.

What's next?
If you are interested in applying for the role then please do get in touch as soon as possible. All candidates will undertake a thorough clearing process in line with Ofsted requirements and of course will be willing to undertake a DBS at the cost of £44, unless you are on the update service. This represents a truly fantastic opportunity and consequently we very much look forward to hearing from interested candidates.

If this role is of interest to you, we'd love to hear from you at the Bristol office. Please register on our website and a member of our team will be in contact with you shortly. Alternatively send a CV directly to

The benefits of taking a job with Protocol education Bristol are:
·Guaranteed Work Schemes
·Commitment to quality and safeguarding short and long-term vacancies to suit your needs
·An extensive CPD training programme
·Dedicated and education specialist consultants
·A bonus scheme for referring friends and colleagues.
