Queen Ethelburga’s is an Independent Collegiate of four co-educational schools. Located in North Yorkshire between the towns of York and Harrogate, we offer outstanding facilities and motivated students who join us with a broad range of academic, social and cultural backgrounds. We pride ourselves on being a happy community where students can grow to reach their full potential, both academically and socially. To meet the needs of our students we offer a wide choice of qualifications, a supportive environment and an exciting programme of extra–curricular opportunities, which are underpinned by high quality teaching and learning. The school actively promotes the professional development of its staff through induction, CPD and career development opportunities.
We wish to appoint a suitably qualified General Teaching Assistant to work within our Chapter House Preparatory School. The vacancy is part time and term time only. The hours of work will be Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 1:00pm.
The Teaching Assistant will work under the guidance of the Head of Chapter House and within an agreed system of supervision, to work with individuals/groups in or out of the classroom. This could include those requiring support in particular areas or short term removal from lessons and will involve assisting teachers in the planning cycle and the management / preparation of resources. You will actively support teaching staff in differentiating the curriculum and in developing appropriate behaviour management strategies.
As a thriving day and boarding Collegiate, we have seen our numbers grow year on year, making us one of the largest school communities in the country. Our facilities are enhanced annually to help ensure that we have everything needed to allow our young people ‘to be the best that they can with the gifts that they have’ (our Hill Standard).
Please note that this is a non-residential position with no on-site accommodation being offered.
