There has never been a better time to join Lostock College, as we are an expanding Secondary School with an increasing number of students on roll.  We are gaining a reputation for excellence in education and have become a first choice school for parents in the local area. We want all of our students to achieve their potential and we make sure that there are no limitations or barriers to reaching the highest possible standards of academic, social and personal development.  

We have a hugely talented and committed staff team to make sure that our curriculum, guidance, care and support meets the different needs of every young person, and we pride ourselves on having high expectations. Our students are well organised, supportive of each other and personally ambitious.  

We wish to appoint an outstanding Teaching Assistant to provide support to learners within the ILH to ensure work is completed to the best possible standard to aid in the safeguarding against students missing out on essential learning when they are missing from the class. The successful candidate will also know how to build relationships with these students, teaching them emotional intelligence, awareness, resilience and repentance, ensuring they are fit to go back to lessons and make a fresh start with staff. The job will also require you to assist with the successful integration of students who are new to the school. All new starters do a ‘transition’ week or two in the ILH, so baseline assessments can be completed and students can be made aware of our expectations. 

We will be looking for commitment to improving life chances for young people, as well as commitment to your own professional development. Our school is a lively and exciting place to work. We truly live by our motto of Inspire, Transform, Succeed.   

You will be well supported by the ILH Manager and Learner Services Teams who are focused on teaching and learning, and by a comprehensive programme of induction and training to ensure your individual needs are met.   

We are totally dedicated to providing the very best opportunities for our students to ensure that we inspire confidence, transform learning and succeed to compete with the best.
