The Board of Trustees is looking to appoint a Teaching Assistant to work within our Specialist Resource Provision to support pupils with a statement for ASD.  This role would be suited to a candidate who is currently working as a teaching assistant in either a primary or secondary setting, ideally with at least two years experience. 

The role of the teaching assistant will be to:

- Work under the guidance of the HLTA & Inclusion Lead, and within an agreed system of supervision, to implement pre-determined work programmes with individuals and groups of students in or out of the classroom.

- Assist the subject teacher with the whole planning cycle and the management and preparation of resources.

- Supervise as required whole classes, occasionally during the short-term absence of teachers, and maintaining good order and keeping students on task.

- Contribute to the overall ethos, work and aims of the school.

The assessment process will aim to assess with rigour a candidate's suitability for this role and will include an observed pupil intervention exercise, meeting with a small group of pupils for a question and answer session and, depending on the success of the previous two, an interview with the Head Teacher and SRP Lead Teacher
