Lifeworks College is a small, independent, specialist further education college for students with learning disabilities. As part of our ongoing development, we are now looking for a Learning Support Assistant to join our friendly team, working term time only.

As a Learning Support Assistant, you’ll assist teachers to deliver high-quality and engaging education and training to students with learning disabilities.
