Learning Support Assistant (Fixed Term)

Here at Fareham Academy we have high aspirations and expectations for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. We aim to supply provision to ensure all students achieve their best, have high self-esteem and are able to successfully transition into adulthood. We strive to put in place reasonable adjustments so that students with special educational needs and/or disabilities can be equally included in school life.

Fareham Academy is one of only two schools in Hampshire that are specialists in supporting Hearing Impaired Students and has a specialist state of the art Hearing Impaired Unit. Our ethos at Fareham Academy is one of inclusion and we are totally committed to ensuring that all of our Hearing Impaired students reach their full academic potential. We feel this can only fully be achieved through integration into mainstream classes.

Programmes of study are tailored to meet the individual student’s needs, so while some students need Sign Language Support, other students may occasionally work one-to-one or in small groups, allowing for quieter conditions and thus enabling a greater focused attention on language skills. Time for conversation is also incorporated into the day and communication and receptive skills are encouraged. During class, students are supported by a specialist team of Learning Support Assistants and Communication Support Assistants, each employed with background knowledge in specific subjects. The role of all of the HIRA team can take many forms depending on individual student’s needs. They are there to ensure assignments or instructions in class have been clearly understood and to monitor the student’s level of understanding and progress.

An opportunity has arisen for enthusiastic and flexible individual to join our team that provide learning support to students with Special Educational Needs. The position is to add capacity due to increasing student numbers. The successful candidates will be able to demonstrate:
- Experience in working with children who are hearing impaired
- The ability to relate well with children and adults
- Good numeracy/literacy skills educated to GCSE level standard or equivalent with passes including English & Maths at Grade C or above.
- A good understanding of child development and learning
- Experience of working or caring for children

We offer staff a secure, supportive environment with excellent professional development. If you have the vision and drive for excellence and want to enhance the learning and continued success of our students, we would be delighted to hear from you. We are looking for a highly motivated individual who:
- Believes in young people
- Ensures students succeed and are challenged to achieve their potential.
