What skills and experience we're looking for

The Governing Body is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified Teaching Assistant Level 2. The position will be a fixed term appointment, subject to funding.

The work will involve supporting pupils in lessons, delivering literacy and/or numeracy units to small groups of pupils outside normal lesson times, and intervention and support in relation to students with special educational needs.

You will need to work well in a team, and be an enthusiastic and committed individual who has the highest expectations to ensure our students achieve great outcomes. You will be part of a successful and dynamic team. You must have an interest in working with students with special educational needs, and be willing to work with students either on a one to one basis or in a small group setting. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals who wish to develop in a supportive, well-resourced and exciting environment. We are an inclusive school, with opportunities for you to develop in your career.

If you can inspire, encourage, achieve, enjoy working with young people and are determined to make a real difference you could be the kind of person we are looking for.
