Closing date:

The Royal Ballet SchoolCovent Garden, London and Pimlico, London

Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £13,721.22 per annum.
Contract term: Fixed Term

We are seeking a  bright, motivated and keen individual to join our Academic and Pastoral teams as a Residential Teaching Assistant, providing academic support either in the classroom or on a 1:1 basis at the Upper School in Covent Garden and providing pastoral support to our 1st and 2nd Year students in their boarding house in Pimlico. Accommodation inclusive of rates and utilities is provided. 

Term: This is a fixed term position for 1 year- 1 September 2018- July 2019. 

Salary: £ 13,721.22   per annum

Hours: Full-time with two evenings off per week. Weekend working involves 8 weekends on duty plus 4 additional ‘compulsory week-ends’ and 8 weekends ‘on call’ per year (although staff may be called upon in an emergency). Weekly daytime commitment is in the region of 18 hours- averaged over the term.

Week-end duty includes providing support in artistic classes on a Saturday morning.

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. This situation reflects current working rotas, however flexibility may be required on occasion as these may have to be adapted to meet operational requirements.

The Monday to Saturday day-time commitment will be in the region of 18 hours.

There is a possible requirement to provide one week of cover for the Spring Intensive Course during the Easter holidays (additional payment will be made for this cover).

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment.
