We are recruiting for a care assistant to join our caring and highly competent team of SEN staff!

You will be supporting a named student within the classroom or in intervention programmes. Previous experience is preferred, but you should have a good educational background including at least GCSE grade C or above in English and Mathematics.  

We are looking for a highly motivated applicant and If you are cheerful, energetic, flexible and would like to work with us, we would love to hear from you!

You will:

  • Attend to students’ personal needs, including support in social, welfare, care and health matters, including where appropriate, toileting, dressing, feeding and mobility
  • Support the students’ use of ICT and other skills in developing independence 
  • Support students in physical activities and education where appropriate

To work at Greensward Academy is to work at a school which puts the child at the centre of everything that we do. If a student’s strength lies in academic rigour, they will be challenged. If it lies in sporting prowess they will be developed. If it lies in creative expression, they will be inspired. The opportunity to work alongside engaged, motivated and resilient students, including those in the highest performing Sixth Form in Essex, is one to be valued.

As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them.  In each of our academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes.  You will also be entitled to the following benefits: a health cash plan, pension scheme and childcare vouchers.

This is a fixed term position for the duration of the student’s attendance at the school and is required to commence September 2018.
