You will be joining a group of successful schools all judged to be good or outstanding, serving approximately 3000 children from nursery through to 19 years of age. The Central RSA Multi Academy Trust sits within an umbrella trust of schools known as RSAA. The RSA Academy in Tipton (West Midlands) is an oversubscribed and expanding 11-19 school with 1100 students (including Sixth Form). This will rise to 1200 plus sixth form over the next two years. The school is highly aspirational, boasting fantastic facilities for both students and staff, including a £5 million new build block, to enable expansion. Significant changes have been made in the last year to remove barriers to improvement, and the successful candidate will be joining the school at a critical and exciting time to drive things forward.

As a mainstream school we aim to offer a fully inclusive experience for all our students, including those with SEN. Our SEN team is committed to developing our young people to achieve the best they possibly can, overcoming challenges, developing new skills and becoming outstanding citizens.

We are therefore looking to appoint a dedicated and enthusiastic Achievement Assistant. We would particularly welcome applications from those interested in working with and supporting students with significant barriers to learning.

The successful candidate will:

• Hold a degree in a relevant discipline
• Be committed to the development of their own practice
• Support teaching staff with the full range of curriculum activities, using appropriate technologies
• Assist students who require additional support for learning
• Assist students who require nurture and/or behaviour recovery intervention
• Deliver interventions to students and track the performance of students
• Work collaboratively with teaching staff to maximise deployment within the classroom
• Apply the school behaviour policy and utilise techniques for managing classroom behaviour in collaboration with teaching and pastoral staff
• Possess a good working knowledge of Keeping Children Safe in Education outcomes
• Demonstrate the ability to build positive and effective relationships with students and staff
• Demonstrate optimism about young people and their ability to achieve
• Be committed to providing the best opportunities and an inclusive environment for all groups of pupils
• Be able to accept challenges, inspire and motivate others
• Be caring and committed to making a difference to the lives of pupils, families and the community
