  • Significant experience of working with people with learning difficulties, behavioural difficulties or disabilities
  • Maths and English GCSE (or equivalent) at Grade C or above
  • The willingness to undertake any relevant training
  • A genuine desire to become part of a committed team of Support Workers

At Vision for Education we take our responsibilities to you seriously and our aim is to ensure you are well supported and rewarded for your efforts.  As part of our supply team you will benefit from:

  • Excellent hourly rates paid weekly through PAYE
  • £50 reward every time you recommend a colleague
  • Support throughout your placements
  • Access to a dedicated consultant 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Access to free CPD such as Team Teach, Autism Awareness and an Educare training package worth £350
  • Full compliance with AWR (Agency Worker Regulations) to make sure you get paid what you deserve
  • Regular social events with 100% complimentary food and drink

If you are a support worker who can enthuse, motivate and engage students and would like the challenge of working in a demanding and rewarding environment then we want to hear from you.
