  • £16,577 - £17,882 per annum

As Oakwood Court College expands, we are looking for resilient, experienced LSAs to join our dynamic team in Dawlish.

Oakwood Court is a specialist independent college for young people aged 16-25 with a range of disabilities and primarily a diagnosis of autism, many of whom have additional disabilities. We were graded 2 (Good) by Ofsted in 2018 and are on a journey to Outstanding.

We are entering a new phase at Oakwood, with a new senior team in place with ambitious plans for the future and a collective desire to become the college of choice for young people with SEND, with a particular specialism in developing communication and social skills through a therapeutically informed approach.

If you’re the sort of person who’s resourceful, flexible and enjoys working in a team and doesn’t hesitate to do that little bit extra, then you could make a real difference to our students with learning difficulties/disabilities. Whilst previous experience in Specialist Education is desirable, it’s more about having a positive outlook and a good sense of humour.

Are you, person centered, focused, resilient, self-motivated, innovative and skilled at engaging with young adults with learning difficulties?

Do you have experience of working with young adults with challenging behaviour?
If so, we would love to hear from you.

Not only will you have the privilege of working with wonderful Young People and fantastic colleagues, as part of Phoenix Learning and Care Group, you will be entitled to the following benefits:
• Retail/High-Street Shopping Vouchers (Sodexo);
• Free Blue Light Card (discounts on a range of products and services);
• Employee Assistance Scheme;
• Fully paid classroom-based induction with extensive ongoing training programs;
• Aid in obtaining extra qualifications and upskilling;
• Internal progression;
• Fully paid holiday allowance;
• Employee Pension Scheme.

If you share our values, then you help us share them!

Successful applicants will be subject to pre-employment checks including an enhanced disclosure and barring service (DBS) check.
