Have experience in care work, but looking to try something new?
Protocol are working in partnership with Herts Resourcing Group to recruit Learning Support Assistants (LSAs).
LSAs work with vulnerable students and learners with disabilities to provide the extra support and care they need to flourish in their education. The work involves one-to-one support with learning, and may also involve personal care.
If you have experience providing support and one-to-one care to people with disabilities or learning difficulties, a role as a Learning Support Assistant could be perfect for you!
- Have a calm, patient and flexible approach
- Have previous experience of providing support to young people, ideally in the 16-19 age groups
- Possess a level 2 qualification in English and Maths at grade C or above
- Possess excellent organisational and communication skills
- Have the ability to develop a rapport as a responsible and trustworthy role model with learners
- Hold an enhanced DBS Certificate, or be willing to apply for one
Previous experience in education is not essential – if you have worked in a care environment, we’d still love to hear from you!
We are looking for people with a genuine passion for supporting learners to achieve their full potential. If you are looking for a rewarding role in a diverse and challenging environment – where you can genuinely have a hand in changing lives – then click apply now!
