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

Required as soon as possible.

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

Permanent and fixed term positions are available.

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

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 opened in September 2020 and Gilbert Ward Academy will open in 2023. 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.

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.

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.

If your application is successful, this self-disclosure information will be checked against information from the Disclosure and Barring Service before your appointment is confirmed. This role will include Regulated Activities and an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosure is required for this post.
