Inspire your Remarkable
Do you want to teach children who have positive attitudes to learning, be surrounded by a supportive leadership team and have your own bespoke professional development plan? If you relish a challenge and want to make a huge difference to our students’ lives, then we want to hear from you!
Anglesey is a larger than average primary school in Burton-on-Trent with over 25 languages spoken amongst the student population.
We are enormously proud and privileged to serve the children and families of our community. Anglesey is a happy, warm and nurturing environment for all within it and every member of our team is striving towards creating the outstanding school that our families deserve. Ours is a very special learning community, filled with dedicated and talented staff, where all students, whatever their ability and background, will flourish. We care enormously about our pupils and work hard for them. We serve an area of high socio-economic deprivation which as well as bringing challenges, is extremely rewarding.
If you have a passion for education, are able to help support opportunities for learning and progress whether inside or out come rain, hail or shine and love working as part of a team, you could be the person we are looking for!
As a Teaching Assistant Apprentice you will support teaching staff in the development and education of pupils, including the provision of specialist skills as appropriate.
You will complete a Level 3 Teaching Assistant Standard. The work experience gained on the job will support this. Your Assessor will assess you in the workplace approximately 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 Assessor.
This is an exciting opportunity to be in a real job within a supportive team, whilst working towards a qualification!
