Learning Support Assisstant KS1 - Stamford, Lincolnshire

If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.

Let’s be honest, you’ve probably lost count of all the young people you’ve worked with who’ve either dropped out of education or been excluded. It’s no surprise to you that part of the problem is that these vulnerable young people aren’t being challenged in a positive way and may not have been provided with the necessary support and resources to succeed…It’s just one big tunnel with no light.

A good education isn’t enough. This is where you come in. Working in the community you face social, domestic and emotional issues, which are sometimes so foreign to most of society, and yet this is the reality that a huge number of young people live in. This is their world, and there’s no way out… or is there?

So, what’s the challenge? For you it’s simple. Keep reading and decide what you’re going to do next.
