Our Teaching Assistants work proactively to support students in carrying out their work in a calm and productive environment. They are able to work both independently and as part of a team, be enthusiastic about working with children, committed to providing help and support and be interested in how children learn. The successful candidate will join our Learning Support Team who work across all Key Stages. The Learning Support Department operates on a curriculum model and in general, Teaching Assistants work within a small number of departments, rather than with individual students, and may be required to support in the Rushanje Facility. Some of our students attend off-site courses and our Teaching Assistants may be required to escort them to their placements and remain with them in support.
As a large secondary school, the support required for our students is very varied and Teaching Assistants need to be physically fit to meet the demands of regular movement between classes. In addition to classroom support the successful candidate may be required to perform additional duties such as homework support and break time supervision.
Thank you for your interest in our vacancy for a permanent Teaching Assistant – Level 2. This post is for 29.17 hours per week; Monday to Friday 8.30am to 3.10pm with a 30 minute lunch break. The actual salary is £12,754.
