As a learning support assistant at Northampton Academy you will work closely with classroom teachers, providing directed support and supervision to one specific child who has Semantic Pragmatic Disorder and the associated language, interaction, learning and communication difficulties.

As part of your role you will also be required to deliver and support with the co-curricular program at Northampton Academy and as a result, hours have been adapted to accommodate this.

The aim of your support and guidance will be to enable that child to access the curriculum and to facilitate full inclusion into school life, supporting them to learn as independently as possible and to develop to their full potential.

You should have a quiet and encouraging manner with the ability to remain calm in difficult situations, along with excellent verbal communication skills and an awareness of the importance of inclusion for children and young people with Special Educational Needs. There will be opportunities to specialise and develop knowledge and expertise in one area.

Whether you are an experienced teaching/learning support assistant, a recent graduate and/ or considering working in an education or care setting or looking for a rewarding career change then this could be the ideal post for you.  Join the team and you will work alongside professionals from a mix of backgrounds.

You will be given roles that let you play to your strengths and will get the support you need to flourish professionally.

Closing date:  12.00 noon on Tuesday 20th August 2019.
