Is teaching your long term career goal? Would you like to gain experience in the classroom with a vision to moving into the teaching profession?
This is an exciting opportunity for a Graduate to support learning, progress and attainment within the classroom, developing students’ academic, emotional and social progress, and improving life chances. The post will provide you with a unique opportunity to gain experience of special educational needs within a dedicated and nurturing team.
Adaptability, resilience and the ability to think on your feet are essential in this varied role, as will an ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of people. Strong ICT skills and a good command of English and Maths are necessities (you should hold a degree, plus English and Maths at GCSE, or equivalent), and have an interest in literacy, numeracy, dyslexia or ASD.
You should be patient and calm, with a consistent and positive approach to managing students’ behaviour and an understanding of how students learn. You will need to be a flexible team player with an interest in developing further professionally.
Duties will include working with teachers in class to support students requiring specialist classroom support. There will also be opportunities to run small group interventions outside of the classroom depending on specialism.
The role directly relates to the number of children requiring specialist classroom support and is dependent on funding remaining in place.
