College Hall Pupil Referral Unit is no ordinary educational setting, something all our young people pick up on straight away. Most have a history of complex life circumstances and social, emotional or mental health needs, and it’s up to all our staff to help them find the confidence they need to reveal the bright personality that’s inside. We are expanding our provision and are seeking skilled behaviour support assistants who are passionate about making a difference.
Behaviour Support Assistants - Required for immediate start
(You will need a Full UK Driving License and own transport)
Small classes/1:1 sessions mean you'll get to know the pupils well, building a mutual respect that promotes effective teaching and learning. But it's not just about lessons. You'll need to be inspirational, determined, nurturing and resilient, and put as much effort into mealtimes and activities as you do into English and science
If you are interested in joining College Hall and you have the skills and the qualities required for this post, we would be delighted to hear from you.
Please note that all applications will be considered upon receipt, therefore an early reply is recommended.
If you’ve got what it takes to be a role model in our supportive environment then we’d love to hear from you. For further information please contact the school and ask for Clare Leahy or visit www.collegehall.org.uk

Bracknell Forest Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children/young people and expects all employees, workers and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices share this commitment. This position requires an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check because it involves contact with (or access to data concerning) children/young people/adults at risk. On your application form, you will need to tell us about any spent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings which may later appear on your DBS Certificate. The Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) has responsibility for working together to oversee the safety and well-being of children and young people in Bracknell Forest.
Pre–employment medical check
You may be asked about your physical ability to perform the job during interview. As a condition of the Offer of Employment, the successful applicant will be asked to complete an Occupational Health questionnaire from which our Occupational Health Advisor will assess your medical suitability to do the job. You may be required to attend a medical examination.
On your application form you will be asked to provide the names and addresses of two people who will provide a reference. At least one should be from your current/most recent employer. If you are not currently working with children/adults at risk but have done so in the past it is important that a reference is obtained from the employer by whom you were most recently employed working with children/adults at risk. Employment references must be provided by your current or most recent line manager and will not be accepted from relatives or people writing solely in the capacity of friends. However, your referees may include someone you know with standing in the community i.e. a teacher, doctor etc. We take up references for all shortlisted candidates and wherever possible we like to apply for these prior to interview.
