The Team Leader based at our Southall campus with some time spent at our Ealing Green campus, will work to improve Learning Support Assistant (LSA) skills, retention and the quality of the support team. We are working to upskill and retain LSAs to improve continuity and excellence in learning support.
The Team Leader role will contribute to create a ‘fit for purpose’ management structure that will be best placed to deliver high quality care and education to Inclusive Learning students.

It reflects the need to improve LSA CPD and performance, monitoring of the quality of support and the high level of accountability that this provision has with local authorities, parents/carers, Ofsted and other partners.
