Teacher Additional Support for Learning (1.0fte)
Langholm Academy is part of an all through 3-18 school. We are a small rural secondary school with 230 students; being a smaller secondary school within Dumfries and Galloway, means that we benefit from having opportunities to really get to know all of our students and their families as individuals. Smaller class sizes mean that learning can be more individualised for our students.
Our school’s aims, values and vision which were recently devised in consultation with our staff, students, parents and partners, are focused on the premise that all of our learners will be afforded a safe and supportive culture across the school where everyone’s talents are recognised, respected and developed. All students will be afforded the best possible opportunity to learn in an engaging, active and appropriate environment, based upon a rich, relevant and well planned curriculum.
The successful candidate will have a genuine enthusiasm for teaching and have passion for the subject ensuring that the learning is a positive and successful experience for all. The successful candidate should be able to be flexible, creative and innovative in relation to their approach to delivering education to our young people.
