anzuk education services pty ltd

anzuk are looking for flexible and enthusiastic people who are interested in working with students from difficult backgrounds.

  • Excellent rates of pay - between £70 and £90 per day
  • Reguylar social and development opportunities
  • 1 to 1 consultant to provide constant support
anzuk Education currently have a large demand for passionate and enthusiastic learning support assistants (LSA’s) to work in a range of our pupil referral units (PRU’s) all across Surrey. PRU’s are alternative provisions for pupils who have extremely challenging behavioural and social needs, or for pupils who have gone missing in education. As a result, the pupils who you will be supporting in the classroom could potentially have social, emotional and mental health issues, or possibly severe levels of autism and specific learning difficulties.

Class sizes in these provisions are incredibly small, often with less than eight pupils in a class, to ensure targeted support is being provided to each pupil.  Your role as an LSA will be to provide close academic and behavioural support, either in small groups or on a 1:1 basis, to assist vulnerable pupils to change their academic and social outcomes for the better.

Previous experience catering for pupils with severe academic and behavioural needs, either in an SEND or mainstream setting, is advantageous but not essential. If you have a background in Social Work, Youth Mentoring or Psychology and are looking for a position working with vulnerable students this is the role for you.

These roles are situated around Harringey, Hackney and the inner London area.

Roles and Responsbilities
The roles and responsibilities of an LSA typically involve:
-  Working closely with the class teacher to support in the delivery of exceptional learning experiences for children.
-  Working on a 1:1 basis, or in small group sizes, with pupils to provide more targeted and meaningful learning experiences. 
- Utilising effective behavioural management techniques to assist in promoting an optimal learning environment within the classroom.
-  Assisting the teacher to set-up engaging and interactive practical lesson activities.
-  Undertake additional duties, such as break and lunch duties, as and when is required.

The majority of our roles require candidates who are able to commit to a long-term position 5 days a week, during typical school hours (usually between 8:30am - 3:30pm).

Requirements
To apply and commence working with us you must meet the below criteria:
- Possess an Enhanced Child DBS with an update service subscription, or demonstrate the willingness to apply for one through anzuk.
- Possess an updated CV, outlining paid employment covering the last two years - any gaps in employment must be accounted for.
- Be based in London, or surrounding areas, and able to provide a valid police check from countries you have lived in (outside of the UK) within the last 5 years.
- Be able to show experience working with children in a coaching, tutoring, teaching or mentoring role - or a willingness to learn and undertake new challenges!

You must have all of the above to be able to be cleared for work.

Salary
Learning Support Assistants often earn between £70 - £85 per day, dependent upon previous experience. Higher rates of pay can be considered for high-performing candidates with excellent references.
