Are you interested in helping our learners achieve their full potential? Oaklands College is home to one of the largest SEN provisions for students aged 16-24 in Hertfordshire. The Springfield and Supported Learning departments support a range of learners with both moderate and severe learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The college also has a specialist department for students with Autism and is accredited through the National Autistic Society (NAS).
Our SEN student support assistants work with our learners who need additional support and guidance before moving onto another supportive programme, or further education, training and work. Support needed varies from student to student. You can expect to be assisting with personal care, feeding and administration of medication. Experience of moving and handling skills in the work place would be an advantage, as well as familiarity with the use of hoists.
Although your assistance would be mostly practically based, emphasis is also placed on personal and social education, use of community services, information technology, literacy and numeracy, the development of employability and decision making skills. You will also work with tutors and students in the classroom and in practical activities.
(Please note you will be required to complete and pay for new enhanced DBS check before you can start at the College, unless you are part of the DBS update service)
When submitting your application please confirm what post you want to be considered for.
