Teaching Assistant job summary
Looking for a new opportunity making a positive impact to young people’s lives? Want to work for an academy that has a fantastic culture and lives by its values?
We’re looking for a Progress Assistant to join our team for 30 hours per week!
As a Progress Assistant you will work under the guidance of the SEND Leader to implement agreed work programmes/intervention strategies with individuals or groups of students both in and out of the classroom. This may include assisting the teacher in their planning and management/preparation of resources.
At the top of your game, you’ll relate well to young people, collaborate effectively with other adults and have strong organisational skills. You’ll need to be an enthusiastic team player with the ability to use initiative, work independently and stay organised.
You’ll do all this whilst capturing the spirit of our vision and values and whilst role-modelling exceptional professional behaviours.
Co-op Academy Priesthorpe is situated in Pudsey and just 15 minutes from both Leeds and Bradford centre with places for 1250 students and 135 staff. The Academy has a very special ethos, which visitors continue to comment on. Equity and equality are key drivers for us in ensuring that all students have the opportunity to excel within a highly inclusive and supportive community.
All colleagues, teachers and support, are responsible for a small coaching group of students which they meet with for 1.5 hours over a week. Full training is offered and you will be buddied up with a teaching member of staff. This adds a very rewarding element to this role.
What our team does really counts. And we offer a wide range of benefits and rewards to recognise the part you play in our success. Whether they benefit your finances, your well-being, or your family, in or outside work. You are important to us!

We follow the Co-op’s ‘Ways of Being’ which are:
Succeed together – Cooperating is what makes us different; we’re better and stronger when we work together.
Be yourself, always – We bring our best self to the academy, so that we each contribute and respect others for doing the same. Of course, being yourself isn’t about excusing poor behaviours that contradict our other Ways of Being Co-op.
Do what matters most – What matters most is ensuring that our students achieve the best possible outcomes.
Show you care – We care about our Trust, our colleagues, our students, their parents, our Co-op and communities, now and for the future.
So, if you believe in our values we would love to hear from you!
