Fast Forward – Learning Support Assistant
We are seeking to appoint an energetic and enthusiastic person with excellent communication and IT skills to support a learner with visual impairment currently on the Fast Forward course. The role involves working with the student on a 1:1 basis and in classroom situations.
The ideal candidate will be a dedicated individual who enjoys working with young people and who is keen to support students studying entry to Level 3 to enable them succeed and achieve their full potential. The successful candidate will be responsible for working closely with teaching and cross college support staff and co-ordinate the resources supplied to enable the student to access education fully as well as developing skills essential to life and independence.
The Fast Forward curriculum is part of the Foundation Faculty working with a wide range of vulnerable and challenging students. Staff are passionate about providing the training and qualifications that local employers and communities need. It would be helpful but not essential (as training and support will be available) if you have previous experience or knowledge of working with students with visual impairment.
