School Escorts recruitment agency listing
A School Escort is responsible for making sure that students leave their homes and arrive at their educational establishment within a specific allotted time frame.
Job role, qualifications, and routes into employment
School Escorts should have experience dealing with children with special needs. Although there are generally no qualification requirements, applicants who have undertaken a course in Childcare will usually be looked upon favourably. Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) registration and a valid DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service - formerly CRB) check will be required.
Another possible avenue into employment as a School Escort could be through work experience. This could be gained by working or volunteering as a classroom Teaching Assistant - or by working with special needs children in the Private Sector.
Employers and pay
Most schools around the country will require Escorts for their special needs students. There is generally a higher job availability in inner cities, as there tend to be more schools in these locations. In most circumstances the job of a School Escort will be part-time. These jobs are often advertised through recruitment agencies.
A full-time salary for a School Escort is usually in the region of £14,000 - £15,000 - with part-time earnings largely reflecting this.
