If you love working with children, becoming an SLA is the job for you! It's relaxed in terms of how much you want to work, you can be flexible with your days to suit yourself. Always had a great experience with the schools and nurseries i attended and all the staff where welcoming.
Management appear to be on a different planet and have little understanding of the front line issue and also do not back up there staff.
Problems with the management style within certain departments and the team leaders do not have the knowledge and understanding of the working environment. Most of the team leaders are more interested in pleasing the senior managers and trying to show that everything is wonderful when there is major problem. aaissues to be dea
I love my job. I have an excellent boss who supports me to meet learner's needs with good advice, encouraging autonomy and creativity. For this reason, I feel very valued as a member of the service. I am fortunate to have positive working relationships with all my establishments and the SMT, teachers and SLAs therein. I also really enjoy working with the families of the young people on my case-list, as I keep telling them, 'they are the experts!' and I need to learn from them before I can help! Lastly, and most importantly, I enjoy working with the children on my case-list. Seeing a change for the better that I have helped to provide is definitely the highlight of the role. Supporting families who are grieving loss and/or facing difficult challenges is the hardest part (but oh so important!).
As a work experience job for school it was an enjoyable practical job, the workers where good company making me feel welcomed. The average day was that we where told what to do, where to do it and with what plants. It was also all complete by the deadline.
Worked for Stirling Council for 4years and it is so disorganised and too many people getting away with not doing thier job properly making it harder for those who do. Lack of management and not supported when unwell. wouldnt recomend as an employer.
taken advantage. long hours, strefull, disorganised

I spent twenty years working with children and families and have had many experiences. Working with children and watch them develop and realising how capable they are is amazing to witness. Very busy days, two days never the same. Being able to use your initiative, on occasions to be able to think and move fast. Having a good management support team is important and for staff to work together. The hardest part of the job is when negative issues arise with children and families. I stayed so long because enjoyed working in the nursery setting, the people, supportive colleagues and knowing you have been a part of the child's life
children always make you smile
Can be very tiring on your feet all day.
While it was an interesting job, it was often run in a chaotic fashion. People in jobs they were not really fit for. Am all for restructure if ita done right. Moral amongst the workforce is unbelievably low.
I worked for Stirling Council for 16 years as a frontline manager in waste services and a scientific officer in environmental health. SC is an active and proactive authority that encourages development. Colleagues and friends excellent to work with.
Overall a good employer. However, support not always quite so forthcoming when required. A very good learning and development ethos with no request to attend relevant courses refused. Nepotism is rife in this local authority. Very much a, "who you know" culture. Job security is practically non-existent due to all the financial cutbacks, but that is replicated by most local authorities at present and not a reflection on Stirling Council.
