We have an exciting opportunity at De Aston School for a Teaching Assistant to join our excellent Additional Needs Department. This post would also be suitable for a person who is looking to gain school experience before applying for a PGCE/ SCITT course.
The role will primarily involve being part of a team that supports Additional Needs within the classroom and will involve working with the whole ability range of students across all three key stages across and the full range of the curriculum. Ideally, you will have had previous experience in a secondary school environment in a similar role.
You will also ideally be educated to at least GCSE level, with good grades in maths and English plus a range of other subjects. Alongside this, you will have good organisational and interpersonal skills, along with the personal characteristics required to motivate students to work hard and make progress, in addition to build relationships with staff.
In return, we will offer a wide range of CPD relevant to your needs and, if appropriate, support you in securing a PGCE/SCITT placement.
