Learning Support Assistant/Tutor/Personal Assistant KRNCL

Hours: Negotiable, minimum of 4 hours per week

Hourly Rate: £12.00 per hour minimum depending on qualifications and experience.

Area: Lemington, Newcastle


Job Role

The role is to support our son who has special educational needs, who is currently educated from home. Our son is 11 years old but due to his complex needs he is learning at EYFS and lower National curriculum levels. He has a very spikey profile with regards to his education levels and ability to engage in learning. He is also demand avoidant and this fluctuates depending on his level of anxiety, so experience and understanding of how to work with and support children with similar profiles is essential.

You will be supporting our son to access social activities and learning opportunities in the home and in the community at a wide range of venues.

You will work 2-1 with my son, this could be alongside parents or another member of his team. There may be times in the future when you fully understand his needs, where you will be 1-1 with him in the home for short periods.

The role will include basic household duties such as basic meal prep and cleaning up after our son.

It will also include basic record keeping with regards to recording and reporting on educational and personal progress and supporting and monitoring my sons day to day financial spends.
