Ashcroft Technology Academy has a rare and exciting opportunity to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated Higher Level Teaching Assistant to join our Maths department.  This role is pivotal to the success of students in Year 7 to Year 11 who require SEN support in Maths, and applicants should have experience of supporting secondary school students, most probably across a range of subjects.  The successful candidate will have, with support, guidance and training, responsibility for planning lessons to teach to small groups of students in the department.  The successful candidate will also monitor their students’ progress, assess the students every term (5 times per year) and report on their achievement and progress.  An enjoyment of and ability in Maths will therefore be necessary, together with a can-do attitude, an ability to work well in a team and independently and a desire to work with students who require additional support to reach their full potential.
