Applicants should possess relevant teaching assistant qualifications or experience, a high level of basic skills and be able to work as part of a team.

In line with Government guidance, we are currently limiting access to our academy. In some instances, we may use remote processes in place of academy-based interviews and therefore we have set up systems to ensure that alternative options are available via skype/video conferencing wherever possible. Every effort will be made to try and accommodate any specific requirements so that no-one is at a disadvantage. 

Understandably, visits to the school may be limited at present, however we are really keen to ensure that you have as much information to proceed with your application as possible, so if you would like a conversation about either the academy or the position please contact Jess Lamplough, HR Assistant on j.lamplough@acklam.outwood.com and we will be happy to assist.
