About this Apprenticeship

Are you passionate about supporting vulnerable children and young people?

This LSA role will give you experience working with vulnerable students aged 4-19, increasing their engagement, attainment and life chances.

You will support students with special educational needs, and a range of associated social, emotional and mental health challenges and traumas. Some children / young people will have suffered adverse childhood experiences, and you will identify their risks and needs, escalating where necessary.

A common feature for many children and young people with complex needs is a history of marginalisation and disadvantage, trauma, dysfunctional family relationships, low educational attainment and stigmatisation. Subsequently they face many barriers in life and are more 'at risk' of negative outcomes. You will be instrumental in providing consistency, and equipping children and young people with tools to ensure they feel safe, secure, empowered, and that they can succeed in life.

This is a challenging role and any previous experience in a relevant field would be advantageous, but is not essential. Training, support and CPD is required in order for you to perform your duties and to ensure safeguarding of all students.

Ideal for a Psychology, Sociology and Criminology graduates, this role will give you excellent practical experience with SEN students in a relevant field, before you take your next step.
