Thinking of a role to further your education career?
Are you ready for a new challenge?
New River College Secondary can provide both.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a dedicated learning assistant who is looking for a new challenge and has a flexible approach, to join a committed team at New River College.
We are looking to appoint two enthusiastic and dedicated Learning Assistants to work with a committed team of professionals in New River College’s Secondary Pupil Referral Units. This role will contribute to developing the best possible provision and support for our pupils across KS3 and KS4. You must be flexible and educated to a Level 2 (English and Maths) standard to help improve pupils’ reading, writing and numeracy.
We are looking for Learning Assistants who relish a challenge, who have the ability to engage children with social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH) and who want to contribute to the lives of children and young people with drive and passion. We particularly welcome applications from those from a black or ethnic minority background.
Many of our pupils are below national age related literacy and numeracy levels when they arrive. Ability to engage children with SEMH is more important than the phase you are used to supporting.
New River College comprises of three pupil referral units in Islington (primary, secondary and medical), for pupils with social, emotional and mental health challenges (SEMH). We teach children and young people aged five to sixteen years old who have been permanently excluded or participate in our preventative programmes to address their behaviour, and children and young people with complex SEMH or medical needs. New River College Secondary is split across two sites so a willingness to teach on multiple sites is essential.
