We have an exciting opportunity for support assistants to join our team. The successful candidates will have a broad knowledge base of working with learners with challenging behaviours and experience of developing and supporting learners with special educational needs and disabilities.

You will also be responsible for delivering all aspects of personal care to individual students.
The College’s ‘Aspire’ group is a small discrete provision catering for learners with complex emotional and behavioural needs. You will ensure that the learners are effectively supported to reduce risk.
