Newlands Academy is a special school for students who have social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. Many of our students have had to overcome significant difficulties in their lives and have struggled to succeed in other educational establishments; in some cases, they have been regarded as unteachable.
When they come to Newlands they are offered a fresh start and the opportunity to develop as young people. Our mission is to use our detailed understanding of every child’s personalised needs so that we can best equip them with the skills and values to ensure a successful transition to adult life.
We are looking for a passionate, motivated and dedicated Teaching Assistant to work in partnership with teaching and other educational support staff. You will provide learning support for pupils, working with them as directed by teaching staff within a structured teaching situation or individually as required in accordance with academy policies and procedures.
The successful candidate will have a good standard of education and will have experience of working with children in an SEMH school environment, with knowledge of specific learning difficulties and a variety of strategies to support children.
As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them. In each of our AET academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes. You will also be entitled to the following benefits: a health cash plan, vehicle affinity scheme, Cycle2work, childcare vouchers and Westfield rewards.
