We are looking for suitably qualified individuals for mainstream years 7 to 11 and for Post-16 to support with students with SEND and students who are EAL.

Fixed Term to July 2019

Applications are now open for a Teaching Assistant post to work with students in years 7-11 and in our sixth form.  Teaching Assistants work in lessons, and with individuals or small groups of students outside of lessons, supporting their learning and behaviour.  The successful candidates will work with students with a broad range of special educational needs and those who require support with numeracy and literacy.  There may be an opportunity to specialise in specific areas for candidates with relevant experience and qualifications.  We also have some one-to-one roles available, working specifically with individuals who have more complex needs.

Applicants must have a C grade in GCSE English and Maths or equivalent.  The positions would be well suited to graduates who wish to gain school experience before going on to do teacher training or those who have experience working with young people with complex needs.

For the EAL Teaching Assistant role a TEFL qualification is desirable and the salary will reflect this.

We are looking for enthusiastic and effective people with an ability to adapt and cope with change to complement our team.  Applicants require good positive behaviour management skills, the ability to remain calm, excellent literacy and an attention to detail.  Experience of working with young people would be an advantage.   

All posts are subject to satisfactory completion of a literacy test and a successful interview.

All applicants are considered on the basis of their merits and abilities for the job. The Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

All posts are subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check.

The Academy will only accept applications directly from candidates themselves.

If you do not hear from us within 2 weeks of the closing date, please assume you were unsuccessful on this occasion. 

Please note that we reserve the right to close this post early, should we receive a high volume of applications.
