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 L.I.F.E provision (Learning for Independence and Future Employment) support a range of learners with S.E.M.H (Social, emotional and mental health), moderate and severe learning difficulties and/or disabilities.

The College also has a specialist department for students with Autism..

Our L.I.F.E 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. Our more complex learners may require assistance 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 full training will be provided. Our S.E.M.H cohort will be supported following the STEPS programme, a therapeutic approach to promote positive behaviour management.

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.

Interviews will take place on a date to be confirmed
