The Outdoors Group School is an Independent Special School that is based solely outside in a woodland setting for learners with SEMH and ASD needs. We believe in developing the whole learner, not just their academic ability. We use a project-based method, allowing the learner to be completely autonomous, whilst contributing to a well-rounded education based on skills for lifelong learning and personal development.
The school caters for KS2, KS3 and KS4 learners and aims to provide a space for learners to develop skill sets and a growth mindset that they have been unable to in previous settings. We have now extended our provision to include KS4. We work closely with learners’ support networks, both professional and familial, and try to create a holistic and engaging place for learners to grow.
We are looking for 1-2-1 Learning Support Assistants, expected to work closely with the other members of their team to deliver learner centred learning opportunities, ensuring they differentiate lesson plans and schemes of work to apply to the individual needs of their learners. It is an essential aspect of the role that you have a love for the outdoors as the position is based 100% outdoors. In addition to having experience of working 1:1 with learners and an understanding of ASD and PDA profiles, it would be advantageous to have forest school skills / knowledge and the ability to demonstrate a knowledge and experience of outdoor learning at interview.
This is an exciting and diverse role working with some of the hardest to reach learners to help build and develop community engagement.
