Becoming a Learning Support worker can be a very rewarding career path to take if you are dedicated and caring in nature.

You could be working closely with learners who have a range of disabilities, including Down’s Syndrome, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.

However, without the right support, you may feel that a career in this area is a step too far beyond your comfort zone.

That’s why here at Protocol we’re here to support you and help you achieve your full potential.
