Learning Assistant - Maternity Cover

Activate Learning promotes independence to enable learners to leave the College ready for the world of work. A range of courses and support is available through numerous programmes to include LLD/D, ASD Centre to mainstream Level 3 and beyond.

As a Learning Support Assistant, you'll be supporting learners across a range of courses as well as offsite provisions and be responsible for their wellbeing. No two days will be the same! You'll be participating in timetabled activities and providing personal assistance to learners. With your strong communication skills, you'll establish good working relationships with learners to enable the learner to build and develop their confidence and motivation.  

As part of the College team, you'll be assisting the tutor and learner to ensure that the learning is appropriate to meet their needs.    You'll be joining a committed team who are student-focused and provide high-quality learner support across the College.   It's a fast-moving, dynamic environment and you'll enjoy the variety of change whilst also having the opportunity to develop good relationships with both staff and learners.  

It's a demanding, yet rewarding role and at Activate Learning we recognise the importance of ensuring that all staff are trained and continue to have access to on-going personal and professional development. You'll be assigned a personal mentor and be part of a team-wide training programme.   Whilst experience is preferred it is not essential, as it is the commitment and desire to work with our learners to improve their learning experience that really counts!

This role is for 37 hours a week, fixed term maternity cover until May 2020.

Any person offered a position will be required to complete a DBS application. Activate Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Activate Learning are committed to employing disabled people and will ensure our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible. We guarantee to offer an interview to all applicants with a disability provided they meet the essential criteria for a role. We will anticipate and provide reasonable adjustments as required and support any existing employee who acquires a disability or long-term health condition, enabling them to stay in work. If you require an accessible format please contact us.
