We think of ourselves as being one school across many sites, working collaboratively to deliver high quality, rich and engaging education in our diverse communities. Our aims are to enable all our learners to flourish and to open doors for their very best futures.

We have high ambitions for our learners and staff and aim to deliver this through a culture of continuous development, support, kindness and understanding. We are a friendly trust that puts people first.

About the role

Lakeside Primary Academy has an opportunity for an Apprentice Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant to join our hardworking and supportive team.

We are looking for someone with a passion for working with young children, a desire to learn and to develop a career in this field.

As an Apprentice SEN Teaching Assistant you will be required to support a child with special educational needs throughout their school day, both in the classroom and during their break times whilst you are supported to increasingly develop your knowledge and understanding, skills and professional behaviours.

As an Apprentice you will be supported on a 2 year apprenticeship programme and learn both on and off the job in order to achieve a professional L3 Teaching Assistant Qualification.

For further information please see https://www.eboracademytrust.co.uk/apprenticeships/

The job requirements

The successful candidate will have a passion for education and supporting children and whilst experience of working with children is not essential, a basic understanding of childhood development is desirable.

You will be able to communicate well with children, school staff and parents/carers alike.

You will also have the ability to work well within a team and remain calm in the face of challenging behaviour.

You will need to be committed to keeping all our children safe and being a positive role model.

Applicants should have at least four GCSEs at Grade 4 or above, including English and maths (or equivalent L2 qualifications) however where applicants do not include English or Maths, support can be provided to achieve the qualification prior to completion of the Apprenticeship.

It is important to note applications from those with an existing L3 qualification as a Teaching Assistant cannot be accepted.

This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a growing Academy Trust which offers excellent, long term career development and strives to provide an inclusive environment in which all children are encouraged to become responsible for themselves, their learning and their behaviour.

Our central aim is to enable all children and staff to develop as aspirational learners and leaders who strive to reach their goals and achieve their potential.

We also offer significant discounts on many high street shops, online retailers and travel agents, not to mention free car parking at all our schools, an enviable pension scheme, sick pay and family friendly policies.
