Job Description

We are currently seeking dedicated Learning Support Assistants to join our team on a full-time basis, serving schools in the Aberdare area, including high schools, primary schools, and ALN schools. In this role, you will provide invaluable support to students, whether as general cover or in one-on-one settings, assisting those who may require help focusing during lessons and providing access to additional learning tools to help them reach their full potential.

The successful candidate will need to employ inventive learning techniques to engage students, including those with socializing difficulties and additional learning needs. We value proactive individuals who can effectively monitor behavioural needs and provide support to students facing challenges such as low self-esteem.

Key requirements for this role include:

  • A minimum of 3 months of child-based experience or a background in the care sector
  • Contactable references to confirm your suitability for the position
  • A valid child and Adult DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) clearance, or a willingness to undergo the necessary checks through New Directions
  • A commitment to completing mandatory training when required

While we ideally seek candidates with at least 3 months of experience working with children or relevant qualifications, we also consider applicants with transferable skills gained from roles in care settings.

Our commitment to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults is unwavering. Therefore, all applicants must undergo a thorough enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) check as part of our recruitment process.
