We are looking to enhance our existing successful and vibrant team, with the appointment of 2 aspiring professionals who will assist us in helping our children to complete their learning puzzles. 

We believe that our pupils possess all the right pieces to complete their own personal jigsaw, but sometimes require additional support, challenge or guidance to see how their pieces fit together to complete the picture. 

The successful candidates:

  • Will have the privilege to work alongside a talented and experienced team who will nurture and support you whilst providing a specific and targeted curriculum offer for our pupils to ensure they become the best that they can be. 
  • Will be able to apply a sound understanding of effective communication, display a passion for learning and an awareness of the impact of social and emotional difficulties on achievement. 
  • May have some experience of working with children but must be eager to learn and enthusiastic to make your best better, whilst supporting the children to do the same.

The successful candidate will complete a Level 3 Teaching Assistant Standard and have the opportunity to gain a Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in Schools.  You may also be required to complete English, Maths and IT Functional Skills (this will be determined by existing qualifications).  

Your Trainer/Assessor will assess you in the workplace on a monthly basis. 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 this apprenticeship you will have a minimum 5 GCSEs, including Maths and English, Grade C or above or Level 4 / 5 and must have resided in the UK or EEA for 3 years prior to the start of the Apprenticeship.

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.
