We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and pro-active professional to join our caring team, playing a vital role in school.

You will be committed to helping students in removing barriers to learning.  Equally you should be flexible with an understanding of how to motivate students to learn; delivering the work set by the teacher in any subject area across the school; ensuring students are on task and demonstrating a positive attitude towards learning.  You will need confidence, and a high level of literacy and numeracy so that you can support our students to achieve their best.  If you have the communication skills to engage with the young people in our school and the creativity to implement learning strategies, you can make a real difference to their futures.

Perhaps you are really determined to get onto the right teacher training programme for you, looking for a stepping stone to gain some instrumental experience, which this opportunity will certainly provide.

Foxford is an 11-18 vibrant, multi-cultural school which is known for its friendly and supportive ethos and its ambition to succeed.  Now part of Castle Phoenix Multi Academy Trust, and its associated teaching school, we are further developing our strategies to continue to invest in and develop our staff and, most importantly, bring about the best possible outcomes for our students who deserve the very best.

The Trust has a strong commitment to staff wellbeing and recognition, through its people strategy, and offers a range of benefits which include the local government pension scheme, cycle to work scheme, discounted gym membership, free parking and an employee discount scheme.
