What skills and experience we're looking for

The Elland Academy are looking to appoint a HLTA to join our academy in September 2024 on a full time, permanent basis.

Do you want to work for a Trust that is transforming educational outcomes for students in some of the most deprived areas in the North of England? If so, this could be the role for you.

Your new role

As a HLTA, you will complement teachers’ delivery of the curriculum and contribute to the development of other support staff, pupils and academy policies and strategies. You will work collaboratively with teaching staff and assist them in the whole planning cycle and the management/preparation of resources. You will supervise whole classes during the short-term absence of teachers. You will provide support to pupils, teachers and the academy in order to raise standards of achievement for all, by utilising your advanced levels of knowledge and skills when assisting with planning, monitoring, assessing and managing classes and to encourage pupils to become independent learners. You will provide support for pupil welfare and support the inclusion of pupils in all aspects of academy life.

If you feel you have the necessary skills and experience required for this position, then we would very much like to hear from you.
