Support young people with disabilities to thrive in education

We are looking for friendly, patient people who are passionate about supporting people with learning disabilities and autism to learn and develop key life skills. Our open day is an opportunity to get a feel for how we operate, meet staff and even have an interview on the day for the new roles available.

What is student support work?

We are expanding the number of students attending ROC College, part of national charity United Response, which is why we’re looking for multiple student support workers to make this possible. The education is provided in multiple community-based settings in Teignbridge, Exeter and surrounding areas.

The work of the college’s support workers is vital in the lives of the people we support, who may have learning disabilities, autism, mental health or physical disabilities. The role will adapt to the needs of each person we support, but is likely to include designing bespoke education for that person, planning lessons and activities, encouraging involvement in community activities and supporting other ways to develop life skills.

Full training will be provided so no experience is required; just enthusiasm, positivity and energy. If you have a background in education, support work or creative skills, you will certainly make the most of that experience in this role.
