Newlands Academy is a special school for students who have social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. Many of our students have had to overcome significant difficulties in their lives and have struggled to succeed in other educational establishments; in some cases, they have been regarded as unteachable.
When they come to Newlands they are offered a fresh start and the opportunity to develop as young people. Our mission is to use our detailed understanding of every child’s personalised needs so that we can best equip them with the skills and values to ensure a successful transition to adult life.
We are looking for a passionate, motivated and dedicated Teaching Assistant to work in partnership with teaching and other educational support staff. You will provide learning support for pupils, working with them as directed by teaching staff within a structured teaching situation or individually as required in accordance with academy policies and procedures.
The successful candidate will have a good standard of education and will have experience of working with children in an SEMH school environment, with knowledge of specific learning difficulties and a variety of strategies to support children.
AET believes that each and every child is inspired to choose a remarkable life. Our mission is to gather and motivate inspirational people committed to delivering an excellent education that launches children into remarkable lives.
Our values are:
- Be unusually brave
- Discover what’s possible
- Push the limits
- Be big-hearted
- Excellent career prospects across the network, with a culture of looking to promote from within
- Access to CPD to enable you to grow and develop in your role
- Local Government Pension Scheme
- Something we take very seriously is staff WELLBEING. That’s why we have partnered up with BHSF to provide support and employee benefits, such as a health cash plan scheme to support healthcare, discounted gym membership and a employee assistance programme
