United Colleges Group, formed in 2017, has continued to provide strong education and skills support to the 16,000 learners who we serve every year. We have around 1,000 dedicated, skilled and enthusiastic staff who always put the needs of our students first and we are now looking for a Lecturer in Beauty to join our cohort of dedicated staff.

Our mission is to provide all our learners with the very best knowledge and to break down any barriers to learning. We pride ourselves on enabling our learners to work ‘individually’ in ‘true to life’ situations. We deliver a learning experience that is unique, enjoyable and rewarding.

The Learning Support Assistant will be based at either Maida Vale or Willesden and will be supporting young adults with learning difficulties and/ or disabilities.

The successful candidate must be willing to fully participate in activities alongside the students and support them in all lessons. You will need to support students with personal care needs and mobility difficulties which include physical support (e.g. stairs, getting on minibus), transfers (e.g. from wheelchair to toilet) and using a hoist.

UCG are looking for individuals who have the ability to remain calm under pressure and be patient and maintain a positive attitude towards students, with an understanding of procedures for safeguarding young people and vulnerable adults.

You will have good communication skills including the ability to use clear language and communicate and listen effectively, also to provide an excellent level of additional support to individuals and groups of students on the autistic spectrum, with profound and complex needs or with challenging behaviour needs. You will have the opportunity to under go training and develop specialist practice.

The College is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff to share this commitment.  Successful applicants will be subject to full-vetting procedures including an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Services Check.
