Teaching Assistant (TA1)
33.5 Hours per Week
Appointments are on a temporary contract, with continuation subject to annual renewal of funding.
Working in a supportive role in a caring environment as a Teaching Assistant you will support the educational, personal and social development of students with varied and sometimes multiple learning barriers and needs in the classroom, in small groups or on a one-to-one basis. This is a rewarding role where you can make a real difference to the achievements of our young people (11–16 years) who need additional support and understanding.
You will be part of a large and supportive team of TAs in the Learning, Intervention and Nurture Centre (The LINC) which has a great reputation for supporting students with special educational needs, disabilities, anxiety, learning barriers and multiple and complex needs. Your support as a TA enables students to access a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum and to be fully included in all aspects of school life and will support the school’s vision of ‘no child left behind.’
We are ideally looking for enthusiastic and self-motivated applicants with experience of working with young people (voluntary or paid), ideally in a school environment, who are passionate about supporting students to achieve their full potential. This is a rewarding and varied role where you will need a positive and flexible approach to work.
If you are simply looking for a change of role in education or are keen to further your knowledge and skill set before training to be a teacher, then please get in touch.
