Volunteer Learning Support Assistants- One Week Placement

Supply Desk are seeking enthusiastic and switched on people who are looking to begin a career in education and schools. We are working in partnership with a good few well known and forward thinking Primary, Secondary and Special Educational Needs schools based in Newham and Tower Hamlets who are allowing us to place fully vetted but inexperienced candidates into their school for a weeks placement to gain invaluable experience. 

Ideally, you will be happy to complete the week of volunteering and after you have, as long as your feedback is good, we can look to get you placed for fully paid work within schools across London. We are happy to hear from you if you are a return to work mum, or if you are a student who is perhaps looking for day to day work. Any background is acceptable, as long as you have the right attitude and commitment.

You will be invited in for an interview first and foremost, where we will ask for references to cover you for the last two years (work or character) and then you will need to complete an enhanced DBS. Once this has come back we will contact the school and arrange a full week of volunteering. Working in any school will be challenging and require your full commitment. However, once you have completed the placement, you will feel more equipped and confident to work in any school across London. We will aim to then place you in paid work local to your area. 

If you are keen to hear more and interested in taking part, then please send an up to date CV across and the consultant in your area will be able to get back to you with further information and complete an initial telephone interview. 

Please reply to Lisa Copeland at lisa.copeland@supplydesk.co.uk or on 0203 319 3016 for more informatio.
