Could you make a difference to the future of one of our learners?

We are seeking to recruit a Communication Support Worker to support 1:1 with a deaf learner at our campus in Halesworth.

With a passion for inclusion you will be supporting our young person to access their learning, and the language of both the classroom and practical workshop environment, enabling them to gain the skills and knowledge required in their areas of interest. You will be facilitating communication access between teachers and peers, supporting the development of friendships and peer groups, and the building of self-confidence.  You will be working with the teaching staff to ensure full accessibility to the curriculum and promoting independence through identifying learning techniques with this young person. Could you support them in reaching their full potential?  Yes? – We want to hear from you!

For our deaf learner to be able to achieve their goals and be successful on transition into their chosen career path, we need to ensure they are supported in the right way. Our priority is to provide communication support in BSL.  If you have BSL skills to at least Level 3 but have not worked in an education environment before, please do still apply – we can offer bespoke training and support.
