Langdon Academy is a large, richly diverse school for pupils aged 4 to 16. We are looking to appoint a suitably qualified or experienced graduate teaching assistant to work with pupils in our secondary phase, either to support students’ learning in the mainstream or to provide more focused individual support (often 1:1) for the ASD students in our Resourced Provision. SEND and Resourced Provision are seen as strengths in the school and you will be joining a highly professional, caring and committed team, if appointed. 

Whilst experience of working with young people in an education setting would be an advantage, we will welcome applications from highly-qualified and strongly motivated candidates who are looking for an opening into a career in education. This role may suit graduates wishing to gain experience in school before embarking on teacher training. Needless to say, you will need to have a real desire and passion to work with children, especially the most vulnerable.

Whatever your experience, we will provide training and support to enable you to play a vital role in helping our pupils achieve success, whilst developing your own career prospects.

Candidates should indicate any subject specialism which may help to match candidates to student needs.
