The Discovery Academy is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, energetic Learning & Teaching Assistant to join our strong team of highly motivated professionals who work collaboratively to raise standards and expectations at all levels throughout Key Stages 3 and 4. This role involves personal care of students. This is a fantastic opportunity for inspiring and aspirational individuals to join a creative, supportive faculty.
At the Discovery Academy our guiding principle is to ‘expect excellence’ in everything that we do, to ensure our students ‘Aspire’. ‘Aspire’ represents the aims, values and behaviours that we strive towards (Ambitious; Skilled; Positive; Independent; Respectful; Equipped) and our curriculum is designed to support students in reaching these. Alongside a curriculum that offers breadth and ambition, strong pastoral support ensures students are kept safe and are well looked after and ensures a sense of family is felt throughout the Academy.
The Academy boasts outstanding facilities, a state-of-the-art learning environment and was judged ‘Good’ following an inspection by Ofsted in January 2019. Our growth programme includes a £2 million additional teaching facility, as well as the benefits a large Academy can offer, such as a comprehensive professional development and leadership opportunities.
The Alpha Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its employees and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is exempt under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced check by the Disclosure and Barring Service along with other stringent vetting and induction processes.
