Higher Level Teaching Assistant job summary

As we are a nurture based provision, we follow a primary based model and post holders would spend the majority of their time working as a consistent tutor with just one or two classes. You would lead on areas such as PSHE and pastoral subjects and be the support for the specialist teachers that come to the class to deliver more academic input. This is an exciting opportunity to get back to teaching children and play a significant part of their overall development. This could be a great opportunity to take full pastoral responsibility for a small group(s) as a stepping stone into teaching. We would provide full training to staff to support them in either of these areas. 

This position would suit a candidate with a proven track record of being an advocate and supporting the learning of vulnerable pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). It would suit an individual who is passionate about making a real difference to student’s life chances and supporting them in achieving their potential in essential life skills, which is a high priority for Springwell Leeds.  The ability to be creative and use imaginative flair to engage is essential, along with having resilience, drive and high expectations to inspire students to achieve. As we are a growing Academy with a teacher training school in the trust, it may also provide an opportunity for further opportunities in the future.
