Broadlands Academy is an 11-16 learning community and proud to be part of Academies Enterprise Trust family of schools. We are a small, mixed, fully inclusive comprehensive school taking children from ages 11 to 16. We are situated in extensive grounds and ideally located between Bath and Bristol.

This is an exciting opportunity for a Teaching Assistant to work on a 1:1 basis with a student with a severe hearing impairment.  This is a temporary post attached to the named student’s EHC funding and is on a 32.5 hours per week, term time only basis, including 3 CPD days.  We are ideally looking for someone with prior experience of working with students with special educational needs and you must be a compassionate, proactive and reliable person.

We are looking to appoint an outgoing, enthusiastic and flexible member of support staff to join our well regarded, successful and supportive team. We are seeking an individual who enjoys working with young people; someone who puts children first and has good communication and organisational skills.

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It’s what motivates us around here. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you’ll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we’re inspiring.

We offer:

  • More like minded colleagues, so you can benefit from others’ experience - You’re connected to our network of 58 academies and thousands of education professionals.
  • More technology so you can make more impact - G Suite for Education embedded throughout. Collaborative cloud technology gives you access to the latest tools, when and where it suits you. More tech enabled classrooms mean less time spent on admin and more time teaching.
