This fixed-term position is well suited to you if you can provide that support, we can offer you a hugely rewarding role as part of our friendly and dedicated team.

In this role, you will be expected to carry out assessments for exam access arrangements and complete applications in line with JCQ regulations. You will also deliver one-to-one or small group interventions to identified cohorts of students with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and work to develop students’ independence in preparation for adulthood and their next steps after college. The successful candidate will also work with relevant staff to share expertise on effective teaching and learning strategies for students with SEND.

We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to help our vulnerable students to overcome barriers and achieve their full potential.
