The Tollbar Multi Academy Trust is seeking to recruit a Teaching Assistant to work with a child who will be entering Somercotes Academy. This role is to support a child with a profound hearing impairment (with cochlear implants) within the classroom environment on a 1:1 basis. This is a fixed term appointment for one year, linked to specific funding.
In particular, we are looking for someone with knowledge of BSL at Level 2 or above, or interest in learning, with the aim to complete Level 1 before the September 2021 start date, then work towards Level 2. Experience as a Teaching Assistant is preferred, but in-house training will be provided. Candidates must have a minimum of GCSE Grade C or equivalent in Mathematics and English.
We always receive a large number of applications for our advertised posts, and therefore, we cannot provide individual feedback on applications. If you do not hear from us within two weeks of the closing date for this role, your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. As part of this process, all successful applicants are required to apply for an enhanced DBS disclosure.
