We are looking for a professional and self-motivated individual with excellent communication skills and the ability to be flexible. The ideal candidate should have experience of supporting children in a classroom environment and working with children with special educational needs to maximise students’ learning.

The vast majority of our staff travel to Beacon from a variety of destinations within the South East, including Brighton, Eastbourne, Lewes and Tunbridge Wells.

We work meticulously to secure a culture of unapologetically high expectations that are underpinned by our collective, uncompromising belief and ambition for the students of Beacon Academy, and for the experienced, loyal, highly skilled and highly effective team of staff that teach them, allowing teachers to teach and students to learn in a school where leadership, management, behaviour and welfare are all judged as outstanding. The Academy is committed to the development of both its staff and students.

The role is for 30 hours per week to be worked over 5 days, Monday to Friday, term time only. This role is paid on Single Status Grade 3, currently £18,562 per annum full time equivalent. Actual salary will be £13,256.
