Do you want an opportunity to make a real difference to someone's life? Could you teach adults with learning disabilities essential life skills on a part time basis?
Our Award winning charity are actively seeking a part-time Learning Support Worker (varoius hours available) in the Thame, Kennington and Oxford areas.
You will be working as a Learning Support Worker, supporting people to learn a whole range of life skills, to help them develop and grow. You will be compassionate, patient, willing to listen and someone who acknowledges people's feelings. Some of the activities include walking, particularly in the rain or near rivers, visiting stately homes and gardens, swimming, going to local groups and cafes.
Ideally we are looking for 3 days a week - ideally Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. All are day-time roles with core hours between 9.00am and 4.00pm, though some flexibility may be required at times depending on the activity you are undertaking.
