Learning Support Assistant

Brighton Hove and Sussex Sixth Form CollegeBrighton and Hove

We are one of the top-performing colleges in the country, situated in the cosmopolitan seaside city of Brighton & Hove. Working here offers the combination of both a wonderful place to work and a great city in which to live. Our students and staff are colourful, aspirational and hard-working – which is perhaps why 96% of employees would “recommend BHASVIC as a good place to work” and many of our students go on to Higher Education.

We are looking for a Learning Support Assistant (LSA) to join the college’s Additional Learning Support Department. You will be required to support students in a range of subjects at A level or BTEC Level 3, as well as some students who are resitting their Maths or English GCSE.

Benefits: Join us and you can expect competitive pay and an excellent pension scheme, family-friendly working and a collaborative culture where ideas take flight together. Our Cycle to Work scheme, free counselling and occupational health service, discounted gym memberships and staff wellbeing events will keep you sharp, whilst our tailored induction programme and investment in your professional development – along with the possibility of funding for additional qualifications and to even take a sabbatical – will ensure an exciting future.

Contract/hours: This is a fixed-term position (maternity cover) until 18 March 2022 or the return of the current post holder, if earlier. This is a part-time post, working 14 hours a week, 39 weeks per year during term time only. The normal working hours will be 7 hours per day on Tuesdays and Fridays, but this is negotiable. 

Salary: The pro rata salary for this post is £8,150 per annum, which includes 4.7 weeks of holiday pay. This is based on spine point 15 within grade 5 of the support staff pay spine, for which the current full-time salary is £25,638 per annum.
