Would you like to support the learning of secondary aged students, temporarily unable to attend school for reasons of ill health and help them to reintegrate back to school? (This role will provide relevant experience if you are interested in a route into teaching in the future).
An opportunity has arisen within ISEND Teaching & Learning Provision (TLP) for a support worker in the Hastings and Rother area (based in Battle).
TLP works with students unable to attend school for reasons of ill health, both physical and mental health and 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 act as key worker for individual students and support TLP teachers to deliver a personalised programme of study. You will support the development of students’ social and emotional skills in small groups are through 1:1 work. You will also support the setting up of an e-learning programme of study for individual students.
In addition, you will support the reintegration of students back into full time education at school. You should understand and be sympathetic to the academic and pastoral needs of this group of students.
You must be prepared to attend training and follow a programme of continuing professional development (CPD).
