About the role
ISEND Teaching and Learning Provision Support worker (Education)
1 Post at Single Status 4 of 30 hours per week Term Time Only
£18,426 per annum full time, full year salary when pro rata to hours and TTO approximately £12,813 per annum
An opportunity has arisen for a support worker role to cover the areas of Lewes and Wealden. The position will be based at the Lewes Teaching & Learning Centre
The T&L Provision works with students, mainly, but not solely in KS3 & KS4 unable to attend school for reasons of ill health (physical and mental). The T& L Provision works in partnership with the student’s school and medical professionals to deliver a personalised short-term education package whilst the student cannot attend school. Students are supported in a variety of venues dependent on need, usually at home or at one of three teaching centres. You will therefore need a current driving licence and vehicle
You will act as key worker for individual students and support T&L Provision teachers to deliver a personalised programme of study. You will also support the development of student’s social and emotional skills through working with students individually and in groups and support the setting up of an e-learning programme of study for individual students.
A key element of the role is to support the reintegration of students back into full time education at school, so you should have an understanding of the academic and pastoral needs of the students.
You must be prepared to attend training and follow a programme of continuing professional development (CPD).
If you would like to have an informal discussion regarding the role please call Donna Lane on 07876 037452
The interview date will be the 13th August 2020. Interviews will be held via video conferencing - Skype
