1:1 Support Assistant

This is a paid position funded by the inclusion group, Còmhla.

Some children need a little extra support to enable them to attend our sessions.  The Còmhla Group are recruiting support staff who will work with children on a 1:1 basis often on a differentiated activity.  Support staff work closely with parents and activity leaders to allow children to be fully included. The role will differ according to the individual requirements of each child.  

If you would like to work as 1:1 support staff on Plòigh,

please contact   Sarah Campbell   below for further details.
