Resident Graduate Assistants (Academic)

White Lodge

We are seeking trustworthy, committed and flexible graduates considering a career in teaching or a related sector. They will be responsible for supporting the Senior House (Years 9 to 11) or Junior House (Years 7 and 8) at White Lodge, ensuring that students have a secure and supportive ‘home from home’ during term time. They will also have a timetable acting as a classroom assistant and supporting students on a one-to-one basis in addition to providing daytime cover within the boarding houses. Suitable training and ongoing support will be provided. 

Location: White Lodge

Duration: Fixed term 1 year, September 2019 - August 2020

Salary: £16315.92 - £16637.50 per annum dependent on hours

Accommodation will be provided inclusive of rates and utilities at White Lodge 

Hours: Full-time with two evenings per week off duty and 15 week-ends per year on duty (although staff may be called upon in an emergency). This includes 6 fixed week-ends. 

Every effort will be made to provide a 24 hour period of non-contact time per week. Where this may not be possible for timetabling reasons, then suitable arrangements for substantial periods of non-contact time will be made. For the avoidance of doubt, the boarding week runs Sunday-Friday and the weekend constitutes Saturday.

The Monday to Friday day-time commitment will be in the region of 11 hours averaged over the term. This situation reflects current working rotas, however flexibility may be needed on occasion to meet operational requirements.

This role includes providing one week of cover for the Spring Intensive Course at White Lodge during the Easter holidays.

Holidays: House staff must be resident during term time (even on nights off), in case of emergency, but may ask permission from the APPW for occasional absences for special occasions. No holiday may be taken during term time, the last week of the summer break or when there is planned Inset. This role will be required to be part of the Summer School team.

Please note that all applicants must complete an application form - CV’s will not be accepted.

Closing Date: 18 March 2019

Interview Date: 21 March 2019

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidates will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check and further pre-employment checks to comply with boarding school recruitment regulations.
