Job Description

You will be supporting in a provision that supports students with visual impairment, autistic spectrum disorder, physical disabilities and/or other learning difficulties. Your students are positive and enthusiastic about their time at the college and when asked the main ‘selling point’ of the provision, Leaders said the friendliness of their pupils.

You will work closely with pupils to enable them to give their views on college life, all of which inform decisions by the college management and staff.

This includes de-escalation and intervention techniques, manual handling and personal care. This training enables you to provide highly individualised support for students with complex communication needs. As a result, pupils are able to make choices and become more independent in sessions.
