Junior School Pupil Support Assistant

Salary circa £19,815 per annum pro rata

What We Offer

St Aloysius’ College is unique. Scotland’s only Jesuit school is situated at the very heart of the city of Glasgow, with a large campus right next to the Glasgow School of Art and near to the Royal Conservatoire, few schools feel quite so much part of the city.  Our iconic green blazer is as much a part of the city as the Clyde and Central Station! More than 800 students are educated across the Junior and Senior Schools (3-18).

The College is proudly a Jesuit and Catholic school but its community is diverse and our mission is to make a difference to the lives of all the young people in our care.

We offer highly competitive salaries with a very generous contributory pension scheme. As part of the St Aloysius’ family you will be working for an open and flexible employer with a genuine commitment to staff wellbeing.

 

The Opportunity

We are seeking to appoint an engaging and enthusiastic Junior School Pupil Support Assistant, to support and assist our Junior School pupils with planned activities and learning experiences.

In collaboration with our Class Teachers and the Additional Support Team, you will help deliver both individual and targeted plans to support learners with their individual support needs.

You will work with our young learners who may be vulnerable or have learning differences to ensure that they are supported to achieve their fullest potential, building their confidence and contributing in their progress towards achieving their individual learning targets. 

 

How you will make an impact

You will be required to support teachers by collating work, organising and assisting with teaching materials and resources required to support our individual learners’ needs.

You will contribute to updating and building individual plans in order to maintain good pace and relevant support for learners. You will also assist with departmental administration on a daily basis.

 

What you need to succeed

With your natural enthusiasm and positivity, you will be able to demonstrate your experience of working with children with a range of additional support needs, ideally within a school environment.

You will be supportive, patient and highly empathetic, with excellent communication and interpersonal skills.  You must also be able to demonstrate your ability to work effectively as a member of a close team.

A qualification in child care, education or ASN is not essential, but would be advantageous.

 

To Apply

If you are interested in applying, application forms can be found on our website and should be completed and sent to Shona Thomson in the Human Resources Department at sthomson@staloysius.org no later than Monday 29 November 2021. Interviews are anticipated to be held on Monday 6th December 2021. CVs will not be accepted.

You should nominate two referees to support your application (please note referees will be asked to assess you against the person specification above rather than being generic in nature).

The successful post holder must be capable of being a member of the PVG scheme run by Disclosure Scotland. Appointments will be subject to appropriate PVG, reference and confirmation of your Covid19 Vaccination Status checks.

We strongly believe in embracing and promoting diversity in all its forms and are taking action to become a more inclusive organisation. We encourage applications from under–represented groups for all positions which we advertise.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment and as such references will be taken up prior to interview.  Questions related to safeguarding young people will form part of the selection process.
