Job/Person Summary

Learning Support Assistant

The Key Education Centres provide alternative provisions for pupils aged 11—16 who have been excluded or are at risk of exclusion from mainstream schools. In September 2019, The Key Education Centre in Gosport adopted a second site in Havant (formally Woodlands Education Centre). Our provisions pride themselves on being abreast of current pedagogy and our work around attachment-focused and trauma informed practice is a fundamental part of our work in engaging pupils in learning experiences beyond those of the traditional curriculum alongside providing them with the skills needed to succeed in life beyond The Key and in modern Britain. 

We are a 'Good' Education Centre (OFSTED February 2018) and we are looking for a Learning Support Assistant who has a genuine interest in supporting our pupils and improving their life chances.  This post is for a one year fixed term contract, with the possibility of extending the contract at the end of the fixed term period.

The post holder will be involved in 1:1 and small group work. Applicants must be flexible, able to show initiative, quick-thinking, calm under pressure, determined and resilient.

This role would suit graduates considering the teaching profession and wishing to gain valuable experience first. A minimum Level 2 (GCSE or equivalent) qualification in English and Maths is essential.
