Finance Administrative Assistant in Truro

A very well organised workplace
I would loved to work for this company for longer if only there were opportunities to work up the career ladder. Everybody held their positions tight and so I had to look elsewhere for opportunities to gain more experiences.

Learning Support Worker in Truro
on 11 March 2020
Dependent on role
Day to day as a learning support worker will consist of being assigned a student, then assisting them to,in and from classes. Some the students may have behavioural and learning issues, sen needs, complex care needs or challenging behaviours. The most important thing I learnt from the experience is how to adapt taught lessons to a variety of learning needs. Yes this can be challenging, but the students in your care will be so much more successful if you are willing to be flexible and adaptable in all overall approaches to learning. Workplace cultures - You will find that some staff are highly motivated and some that are there purely for the pay check. This happens in all types of businesses, but trust me you will be to busy focussing on your student needs to notice much of the workplace dynamics in play. However, if you do require support, there are a lot of staff more than willing to provide you with advice and guidance when needed. The hardest part of the job is ensuring safety of your pupils within that 8hr timespan - the most challenging are those with behavioural issues, but if you have a passion for student success, welfare and overall soft skills (compassion, patience, empathy etc) then you will be fine. Just remain focussed at all times - the student is your number one priority and you will soon pick up triggers for behavioural changes, that will enable you to act fast and change a possible negative outcome to a positive one. The most enjoyable part of the job is the organised visits offsite. Always remember to risk assess - this is vital in planning and ensuring that your allocated student(s) gets the most out the visit.
