‘Staff morale is high and senior and middle leaders support the academy well’ Ofsted 2015

‘Pupils learn in a calm working atmosphere in all year groups and classes. They know that they come to the academy to learn and are ready and able to do so’ Ofsted 2015

If you want to work in an academy with children who have positive attitudes to learning, supportive leadership and tailored professional learning opportunities then we want to hear from you!

As we look to strengthen our team and move our Academy from ‘Good’ to ‘Outstanding’; we are looking to appoint highly motivated worker to join our happy staff team and support teaching staff in the development and education of pupils including the provision of specialist skills as appropriate.

As an academy we pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere where we work together, support each other and share resources. You will also be part of a nationwide Multi Academy Trust.

Through tailored professional learning opportunities we will look to develop you throughout your career. We work closely with our ‘Barnsley Primary Hub’ with opportunities to shadow and observe best practice with many examples of staff taking advantage of promotion across the Hub and the AET academy network.

We can offer you:

  • Happy, enthusiastic and well behaved children
  • A leadership team who welcome fresh ideas, traditional values and a sense of teamwork,
  • Well supported staff who are committed to driving high standards

You will complete a Level 3 BTEC Diploma in Supporting Teaching and Learning in the Classroom. You may also be required to complete Literacy, Numeracy and IT Functional Skills (this will be determined by existing qualifications). Your Trainer/Assessor will assess you in the workplace every 4 weeks. In between these meetings you will have dedicated time away from your job to work on the apprenticeship and collate evidence for your apprenticeship e-portfolio with ongoing support from your Manager and Trainer/Assessor.

This is an exciting opportunity to be in a real job, with real variety, from day one whilst working towards a qualification.

To be eligible for the Apprenticeship, applicants must have resided in the UK or EEA for 3 years prior to the start of the Apprenticeship and must not hold a level 4 (or equivalent) qualification or above. Please note: applicants must not be a graduate or have already completed a Level 2/3 Teaching Assistant apprenticeship (depending on the level you are applying for).

This will be a fixed term position and the duration of the apprenticeship will be determined by the job role and current skills. The minimum length of the apprenticeship will be one year and one week.

Please note: AET has their own in house apprenticeship scheme and do not work with any other training providers to deliver Apprenticeships.
