As part of the ongoing development of our service, we are seeking Learning and Progress Support Workers with a strong commitment to social inclusion and improving learning outcomes for vulnerable children.

We can offer you the opportunity to be part of a highly effective learning team and continued professional development. As part of the Raedwald Trust you may be required to work across the trust settings.

  • be a good team player
  • be flexible, resilient and calm under pressure
  • demonstrate a positive attitude towards all stakeholders
  • have GCSE English and mathematics at Level C or above (or equivalent).

As part of the Raedwald Trust Team, you will support pupils in-centre during the school day (including lunch time duties), communicate with families and outside agencies, and enable inclusion within community schools via advisory role during outreach.
