The Surrey Care Trust is a local charity that helps people to improve their skills for life, work and learning through counselling, education, mentoring and volunteering. Our programmes support disadvantaged families in improving their chances in life. Through our programmes we are enabling people throughout Surrey to overcome the disadvantage of low skills, poor educational achievement, limited opportunities and tough financial circumstances.
STEPS to 16 is Surrey Care Trust’s long-running alternative education programme for 14 – 16 year-olds who have struggled to cope in mainstream education. It is based at our Woking Learning Centre.
STEPS has a successful track record of re-engaging students in learning. We nurture their personal, social and functional skills and support them into further education or employment. Working closely with carers, parents and other professionals involved in the students’ lives we provide a supportive environment for a small group of students with high levels of individual attention.
The Centre is looking for two part-time Learning Centre Assistants. This is a key role within the STEPS team, supporting delivery of the programme and giving general support to the team and students throughout the day. This is an interesting, challenging opportunity to really make a difference to the lives of our students by supporting them to take a different path, more positive decisions and improve their educational outcomes.
