We are currently looking to recruit a Classroom Cover Supervisor.

The Victory Academy was officially opened in September 2015 and is sponsored by The Thinking Schools Academy Trust (TSAT). We are privileged to work in a stunning learning environment with excellent resources. The Academy is focused on providing an education for all.

Our job is to find and foster these for all. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum geared towards ensuring that our students will be dynamic members of society when they leave the Academy. 

In our most recent Ofsted inspection, Inspectors commented that the Senior Leadership Team and Governors ‘demonstrate a strong sense of drive and ambition for The Academy’; ‘exciting links are being built with The Royal Navy and The Academy’s strengths in the arts are being channeled energetically towards the achievement of a prestigious national award’; and, ‘The sponsor’s concentration on developing students’ thinking and learning skills is giving a very strong steer to improvements in teaching and learning.’ 

The successful candidate is likely to possess the following skills & experience:

  • Successful      recent experience of working with children of secondary school age.
  • Good      general standard of education, especially with regards to numeracy and      literacy skills.
  • Ability      to apply behaviour management policies and strategies which contribute to      a purposeful learning environment.
  • Understanding      of relevant policies, codes of practice, legislation. 
  • Must      be able to use own initiative, work independently, motivate and inspire      with a creative approach to problem solving.
  • Must      have excellent communication skills, both verbal and written.
  • Must have the ability to work calmly under pressure and      have the ability to adapt quickly and effectively to changing      circumstances/situations.
  • A      willingness to undertake any training and development related to the role
  • ICT skills
  • Confidentiality      inside and outside the workplace
  • Ability      to support Academy ethos and vision into the wide community. 

It would be advantageous if you also had:

  • Relevant      experience of working in a school environment
  • Experience      of working with DSEN students
  • Basic      knowledge of first aid 
  • Undertaken      induction training for teaching assistants
