Job Description

New Directions Education are currently recruiting for Learning Support Assistants to work in Behavioural & Additional Learning needs units in the Aberystwyth area. Previous experience would be beneficial although training will be provided to those willing to work hard and try something new. We have a high demand for long-term and ad-hoc positions, meaning we can offer work that fits around your schedule. 

The roles will involve working with the class teacher to provide an interactive and nurturing learning environment alongside providing academic and emotional support for the pupils.  The Schools are looking for candidates who are committed, career driven, flexible and versatile with the confidence to work to a plan but also with their own initiative.
