Relief/Casual Learning Support Assistant

   Relief/Casual Learning Support Assistant – £12.15 per hour

Oaklands is an excellent special school serving the London Borough of Hounslow that provides specialist education to students with severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple difficulties and autism.  From September 2018 we have a Primary school (New Oaks), Secondary school (High Oaks) and a specialist independent SEN College provision (Great Oaks). We can cater for students aged from 4 to 25 across the Oaklands group. We believe that all of our students are capable of making outstanding progress and we want to appoint individuals who share our belief.

Oaklands is at an exciting point in its development. We recently relocated to our purpose built new school building (close to Osterley Tube Station and other public transport links) that offers state of the art facilities for our students. In time, the primary and secondary schools will be based on two sites with New Oaks Primary moving back to Woodlands Road once refurbishment is completed.

We regularly need additional staff to cover absence and are looking to recruit a number of individuals to join our team of Relief Learning Support Assistants, working on a casual as and when basis. Successful applicants will be required to work in partnership with class teachers to support students’ learning. In addition you will be required to attend to students’ personal needs, helping with social, welfare, care and health matters, which may include toileting, feeding and mobility. We are particularly interested in recruiting people who have previous experience of working with young people who have special needs. Whilst we cannot guarantee work for you, our existing bank staff are offered work regularly.

We offer a comprehensive induction and Inset programme and wellbeing benefits including an employee assistance programme.

Oaklands is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and anyone applying to work at the school is expected to share this commitment. This position is subject to a satisfactory fully enhanced DBS check and references being received. All positions are subject to the satisfactory completion of a 26 working week probation period. Details of this post are available on the school’s website:  Visits to the school are welcome. Please contact Rany Kalsi, HR Officer for an appointment on 0208 560 3569 (ext. 107)
