Learning Support Assistant - Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

Can you engage the "unengageable"?

Some young people present such challenging behaviours that many believe there's no way to engage or teach them. Whether it's defiant, aggressive or even destructive, it can appear from the outside that there's no way of helping them.

Fresh Start in Education's belief is that there's always a way. They look past the behaviour and see that these children's needs must to be met for them to succeed. What's required is the empathy, resilience and patience of an Education Specialist. In working for Fresh Start in Education, you'll fully utilise your experience & expertise to engage some of society's hardest to reach young people. You'll be the individual that gave them hope when it looked like there was none.
