We are hiring skilled Learning Support Assistants with experience of supporting pupils with SEND.

Required for September 2021 and onwards, we are looking for Learning Support Assistants with an interest in working with pupils with autism and associated disorders. All pupils have significant learning difficulties and complex needs. The range of abilities stretches from Engagement Level to lower National Curriculum levels.

The successful candidates will be deployed initially at Thomas Bewick School, but will be expected to work at any Prosper Learning Trust site should the need arise.

Permanent and fixed term positions are available.

Our fixed term post holders will form a small ‘cover support team’ and will be required to provide cover wherever needed across all phases of the school.

Prosper Learning Trust was established in January 2018 with Newcastle Bridges School and Mary Astell Academy. Thomas Bewick School joined in 2019, and Harry Watts in September 2020. We are striving to further build collaboration across the schools and grow as a Multi Academy Trust, whilst continuing to strengthen our relationships with schools outside the MAT for the benefit of our pupils.

Thomas Bewick School is a specialist school for pupils aged between three and nineteen years with a diagnosis of autism located in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Prosper Learning Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and anyone applying to work within the Trust is expected to share this commitment. This position is subject to a satisfactory fully enhanced DBS check and references being received. Please note that in all cases written references will be taken up and made available to interviewers before the final selection stage; even if you indicate otherwise.

Closing date: Ongoing
