School for Inspiring Talents (SfIT) is an independent day school, with bases in Newton Abbot and Ashburton supporting the most vulnerable young people in society aged 5-16; those children who do not find it easy to fit into existing educational provision. This can be for many reasons, including a range of behavioural, emotional and educational challenges, exacerbated by being on the autistic spectrum. Other difficulties such as sensory processing disorders, attachment disorders or those having faced trauma in their lives due to domestic violence, breakdown of foster care or adoption placements and those who are deemed school phobic.
It is our intention that every student will achieve their full potential in both academic and personal development. As a day school, we provide an alternative to residential education which supports our students to develop independence and social skills whilst living in their home environment.
As a Learning Support Assistant based at our Newton Abbot school(s) you will be a key member of our team, enhancing the education of our students. This is a great opportunity in a growing school with excellent opportunities to build experience working amongst young people with Social, Emotional & Mental Health difficulties (SEMH).
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share our commitment. This role requires an enhanced DBS disclosure.
