Learning Support Assistant in East Lothian

Pay should be more.
Great job just wish we were better thought off. Schools couldn’t run as smoothly without us. yet Councils once we re at top of our rate keep us there. Rate of pay really now needs to be looked into. I’ve done my job since 2002 and behaviours in schools has gotten so much worse. It’s seriously needs to be looked into how much work we do to keep the classes calm so class teacher can teach their class. It’s exhausting. We need a pay rise for sure. We may not have a teaching degree…

Never work here
The back biting incompetence and lack of management is horrific. The are all scared of the day they have never seen and don't yet realize how incompetent they actually are because no one ever truly holds them to account.

Worked here for 5 years. Every day is a new day with ELC. It's a great company to work for if they gave back what you give in and looked after their staff more closely. Work is fabulous can't fault it but I can fault the support.

although it was long shifts the work was varied and interesting attending alarm activations in the county and meeting different emergency services staff, also working with a great bunch of staff in the CCTV suite.
