As an 11-19 secondary school serving nearly 1,200 students in central Gateshead, we have some ambitious plans for the future. We have recently joined the Emmanuel Schools Foundation, creating exceptional opportunities for knowledge sharing and career development – and with the renowned Emmanuel College itself just seven minutes away, we have a clear local model for excellence. We are committed to releasing the potential of our students and staff alike, and we have four key priorities for improvement – leadership, curriculum development, teaching and student engagement in extracurricular activities. You will be central to delivering our strategy, as you transform both the school and our students’ futures.
We are seeking a highly motivated Learning Support Assistant to join our enthusiastic team of professionals on a full-time basis.
You will perform a key role in supporting student learning in all its aspects. You will be required to work with targeted groups and/or classes and must have a good understanding of the principles of child development and learning processes.
Whilst relevant experience and professional qualifications will be valued, we are seeking, in the first instance, to appoint a colleague whose personal qualities and convictions fit them for this demanding role. Once appointed, a commitment to continuing professional development will be vital.
We look forward to hearing from you.
