We are seeking to recruit six support workers to join us in the development of our provision for young people with severe and complex learning needs at the College. These posts will be to support young people who are attending college two days a week as part of the Pathway to Adulthood four-day programme which is run at the College and Waddon Youth Centre. You may be working 1.1, with other support workers with individual students or with groups of learners.

You will need experience of and a high level of commitment to working with young people with a range of complex special education needs, including those with autism, health, physical, emotional and behavioural support needs. You will need to be an excellent support worker that can develop a thorough understanding of individuals and that can deliver personalised learning programmes, using strategies that empower and support individual students to develop their social skills and independence towards adulthood. You need to have excellent communication and organisational skills so that you can work with the class teams, parents/carers and other professionals, provide constructive feedback and keep clear records of support and progress.

You will also need to have a positive approach and a commitment to providing the best quality experiences for young people with complex needs.

In return Croydon College offers the opportunity to join the Government Pension Scheme and a commitment to your continuing personal development in an environment that supports the sharing of good practice and encourages excellence, creativity and diversity.

If you would like an opportunity to work with us on developing our new provision and be employed by an organisation that is working towards being an outstanding provider, we would like to hear from you.
