About the role

We are seeking to recruit two well-qualified, enthusiastic learning support assistants to work with students across all year groups. This is an excellent opportunity for people considering a career in teaching but wanting to gain some valuable school experience first.

This is a very rewarding role, supporting young people to access their education, making a real difference in their lives.

The successful candidates will have experience, or an interest, in working with young people. Good literacy, numeracy and ICT skills are essential, as well as the ability to communicate effectively.

Hathershaw College

The Hathershaw College is a very successful and oversubscribed 11-16 Academy within the Pinnacle Learning Trust, which consists of ourselves, Oldham Sixth Form College, Werneth Primary School and Broadfield Primary School. Alexandra Park Junior School will be joining the Trust from 1st April this year. We are also well located with good public transport links and excellent access to the motorway network.

You will see from our Ofsted report published in January 2022 that we have retained our good status. I would advise you to read the excellent report before applying. Key highlights from this include: “Pupils behave sensibly around the school and in lessons. They are respectful to other pupils, staff and visitors.” “Staff value the steps that leaders have taken to ease their workload and support their well-being.” Senior leaders have taken radical steps to manage the workload and well-being of colleagues by reducing unnecessary burdens and bureaucracy. These actions were rated highly in the most recent staff survey, which takes place on annual basis.

The Pinnacle Learning Trust

We celebrate students’ uniqueness and support our young people to flourish and become responsible, successful citizens who contribute positively to their communities. Our Trust invests in each member of staff, offering them professional development opportunities, including designation as Evidence Leads in Education for the Research School; delivery of school-to-school support; CPD facilitation and support for trainee teachers. Staff have access to opportunities to develop their teaching practice, such as training on metacognition, virtual classroom coaching and retrieval practice. As a Trust, we celebrate diversity by encouraging an understanding of our communities, faiths and cultures.
