SEN – Student Support Assistants

 

Are you interested in helping our learners achieve their full potential?

Oaklands College is home to one of the largest SEN provisions for students aged 16-24 in Hertfordshire. The Springfield and Supported Learning departments support a range of learners with both moderate and severe learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The college also has a specialist department for students with Autism and is accredited through the National Autistic Society (NAS). 

Our SEN student support assistants work with our learners who need additional support and guidance before moving onto another supportive programme, or further education, training and work. Support needed varies from student to student. Some of our students require high levels of assistance with personal care, feeding and administering of medication. Additionally, some can display behaviours that are challenging and difficult to manage. Higher functioning students are able to work more independently and may not require any support with their personal care needs. Experience of moving and handling skills in the work place would be an advantage, as well as familiarity with the use of hoists.

Although your assistance would be mostly practically based, emphasis is also placed on personal and social education, use of community services, information technology, literacy and numeracy, the development of employability and decision making skills. You will also work with tutors and students in the classroom and in practical activities.

If you have the following; 2 year’s general work experience of working with students in either schools, adult education, prisons or voluntary/charitable organisations and a Good standard of education 5 GCSE’s grade C or above or equivalent qualification or extensive experience then want to hear from you.

We have a range of posts with variable hours ranging from 2-5 day posts term time only; the core working hours for the role will be from 8:45am – 3:45pm (Wednesday – 4:45pm)

If you are interested in coming to work for us email your CV to Rachel.ziemelis@oaklands.ac.uk or for an informal chat/tour of the Entry provision before submitted your CV please call 01727 737379
