Learning Support Assistant – Bank Cover

Zero hours contract, Monday – Friday

£9.40 per hour including consolidated holiday pay

Brooksby Melton College is a specialist vocational Further and Higher Education provider in Leicestershire, spread across two main campuses – one in the heart of the lively market town of Melton Mowbray and the other on an 850-acre estate at Brooksby.

The College received a “Good” Ofsted judgement in 2016 and our objective is to be judged an “Outstanding” College within the next five years. As part of this journey, both our campuses have undergone a £27m redevelopment, bringing new facilities and improved environments for all our students and staff.

The college has seen significant investment in practical and teaching facilities within our departments benefitting from brand new state of the art facilities. We are proud of the fact that our student achievement is the highest in the East Midlands for 16-18 year olds studying level 3 provision.

The college is looking to recruit Learning Support Assistants who can offer variable hours cover (at short notice) for absent staff across all college sites. The role delivers individual / group-identified support so that students may fully access the college curriculum.

The successful candidates should have or be willing to undertake a relevant care or learning support qualification. Experience in supporting teaching, learning and assessment is essential.

The role can be incredibly diverse – from assisting with numeracy and literacy to providing personal care, mobility and behavioural support – and will require the ability to undertake tasks of a physical nature. Applicants must be adaptable and have the confidence to engage with students with a range of learning needs across a broad curriculum.

Hours will be offered according to the college’s need.

Our benefits include:

  • Pension
  • CPD and Training
  • Occupational Health Support
