Job description

Learning Support Assistant required to re-engage young people in alternative provisions in Leeds

  • Are you a confident individual looking to support young people in alternative education settings?
  • Are you experienced in meeting the social, emotional and mental health needs of young people?
  • Are you able to create a safe, welcoming and engaging learning environment?

Teaching Personnel are looking to recruit a learning support assistant with experience in engaging disaffected children with low self-esteem who may suffer with some anxiety and/or anger management challenges. Your role will focus on providing the schools with an additional layer of supportive behaviour management. You will ideally have a background in working with young people or adults with challenging behaviour and have worked in educational or health and care settings.

You will be working either on a one-to-one basis or with small groups based on the pupils identified as needing support in this area. The length of the assignment will be dependent on the development of the child/children and will be judged on their improved confidence, engagement and positive outlook. Essentially this will be determined by the school.
