Teaching Assistant job summary

Quarrydale is an Academy located just between Mansfield and the M1. It has over 1200 well behaved students and was recently graded as good by Ofsted. At Quarrydale we look for staff who adopt caring and nurturing approaches to pupils and who encourage a positive learning environment to take place.

What We Offer Our Staff:

A significant amount of Quarrydale Academy’s budget is designated for external staff development programmes. This is done because at Quarrydale we believe that staff development is very important and we encourage all of our staff to take up the offer of Continuing Professional Development. We also ask staff to provide feedback on the courses they attend so we are in a very good place to suggest which development programmes are the most effective.

If you feel that you have the ability and drive to support our students to reach their full potential, joining our Academy also offers many other personal benefits including:

• a subsidised pension scheme

• close, convenient links to the M1 junction 28, Nottingham, Derby and Sheffield

• close access to the peak district, national park and popular historical sites

• A supportive environment in which your talents will be encouraged, nurtured and rewarded

• Access to Perkbox and Perkbox Medical (platforms which give employee benefits and inspire a unique employee experience, enriching personal and working lives)

Quarrydale Academy has a fantastic location as it is situated just of the M1 so is accessible from cities such as Sheffield, Nottingham and Derby, therefore city life is something our staff can readily access and enjoy. Also some of our staff commute from around the Peak District which has been described as one of the most beautiful national parks in England. So if you’re looking for city, town or village life then we can certainly accommodate that.

As an Academy we pride ourselves on fostering positive relationships between staff and pupils and their guardians. Ofsted did commend us for this, and so if this is something which is important to you as a teaching assistant then is the perfect environment for you to work in.

All departments within the Academy provide high levels of support to staff members and you will enjoy an environment of motivated students aspiring to reach their full potential encouraged by enthusiastic and motivated staff.

So if you do not want to miss out on this incredible opportunity then please apply immediately.

The Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Therefore, the successful candidate will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS check and other vetting procedures including the provision of two good references.
