Learning Support Assistant recrutement :

S.P.R.I.N.T.’s Project


What is a learning support assistant ?

A Learning Support Assistant, also called AVS in French (Auxiliaire de Vie Scolaire), has for their main mission to accompany children with special educational needs in their school and extracurricular life. The AVS can take care of one child in particular in mainstream schools (primary, lower or high school). The AVS does not carry out teaching missions, but generaly accompanies the child within the framework of the school and extracurricular life.

The main objectives of the AVS are:
• to intervene in classes to assist the child in their movements or handling of materials;
• to help the child to participate in class outings;
• to assist in the performance of technical procedures that do not require medical qualifications (help with meals, hygiene, travel);
• to collaborate in the implementation and monitoring of individualized schooling projects for the child;
• to stimulate communication between the child and their classmates or their families;
• in the presence of the teacher-educator referent - the AVS can support families / parents by communicating to them the new evolutions or difficulties of their child.

Sprint’s project :

Our project is to create a platform to connect schools, families and job applicants to promote and foster inclusive education in Paris.

By networking, open recruitment events and an online platform (the last being under construction), we will be promoting integration into mainstream education for children with special needs, sharing information and research-based tools and strategies for learning support assistants, as well as connecting parents, schools and learning support assistants.
