As a Pastoral Support Assistant at Millcourt School you’ll help us meet our young peoples’ emotional needs.

You already have experience working with young people with BESD or ASD in a school or care setting. So you understand their developmental needs and what pastoral care entails.

This approach allows each young person to equip themselves with the skills and practical experience they need for life beyond school and into their chosen career.
