This postholder will undertake the admissions and pre-entry assessment processes in accordance with the SEN Code of Practice for education establishments within Ambitious about Autism (AaA) and Ambitious about Autism Schools Trust (AaAST).

You'll act as the first point of contact for admission enquiries for St John's College Brighton from prospective parents/carers, determining basic eligibility of prospective learners on initial enquiry and deciding on appropriate action required.

You'll process applications and monitor each individual admissions case, creating electronic and paper applicant records, maintaining confidentiality and accuracy at all times in line with GDPR. You'll be able to handle a varied workload with tight timescales and conduct yourself in a professional, yet sensitive manner.

We are looking for someone who has:

  • Experience of dealing with potentially emotional callers and handling sensitive telephone conversations in a polite and professional manner.
  • An understanding of autism and the special needs education environment.
  • Experience of prioritising a range of administrative tasks in an accurate, effective and timely manner.
  • A willingness to learn how students are funded, including understanding of the Education and Skills Funding Agency.

In return, we offer great benefits including a generous holiday allowance and commitment to continued professional development (CPD), flexible, hybrid working and more! Please note that whilst the postholder will predominantly work remotely, there will be some requirement to travel across AaA's education settings, including St John's College in Brighton.
