London South East Colleges is a successful and innovative College operating with sites across Bromley, Bexley and Greenwich. With nearly 14,000 students and 1,000 members of staff, the College is a major employer in the area and makes a significant impact on the lives and future prospects of its learners who travel from across London to study with us. The College is also the sponsor of London South East Academies Trust, a growing Multi Academy which is rapidly developing a track record of academic and financial success. With a combined turnover of circa GBP 65m and the ambitious growth plans of the group, there has never been a better time to join this exciting organisation.

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced and enthusiastic specialist to take on day to day coordination of support in our highly successful SEND provision.

As well as expertise in working with students with Autism/ASC, complex needs, physical disabilities and/ or severe learning difficulties you will have sound knowledge and understanding of supporting personal care in particular.

You will be able to show excellent levels of care and learning support that follow agreed practices and protocols. You will have sound understanding of Individual health & care plans (IHCPs) and how they relate to access and learning.

Ideal candidates will have a good standard of general education with or working towards Level 2 in maths and English. They will also be proficient in the use of a range of IT applications, including Excel, PowerPoint and Word. In addition, they will have experience of working in an educational or care setting, involvement in assessments & reviews of learners/clients. However, a medical background and first aid training could be an advantage. Above all, they will be able to show excellent communication and organising skills, with the ability to stay calm, focused and positive.

As the College supports a number of children and vulnerable adults, all staff are exempt from Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Accordingly, most staff will be subject to either a 'Standard' or 'Enhanced' DBS (formerly CRB) check.
