What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint enthusiastic and committed Teaching Assistants to join our supportive and successful Additional Learning Support team.

This would include:

  • Supporting students to access lessons across the school;

  • Developing an understanding of the needs of the students you will be working with;

  • Building students’ self-esteem and confidence;

  • Monitoring, recording and reporting on student progress;

  • Working 1:1 or in small groups with students.

If you have a genuine passion for education, and a desire to make a positive difference, excellent organisation and communication skills and a friendly and professional manner then we would be interested to hear from you. The successful candidate will be able to establish a positive, supportive relationship with our more vulnerable students. They will be flexible and able to adapt both to the developing needs of the students and the requirements of the teacher and department. The ability to work calmly under pressure and a willingness to learn and work with our digital systems will be required.

What the school offers its staff

The most important thing you need to know is that Warden Park Secondary Academy is a fantastic school to work in!

Our students are excellent - generally above average ability on intake they have an excellent work ethic, standards of behaviour are very high and they are enthusiastic in their support of the academy evidenced, for example, by the very high numbers who engage in extracurricular activities.
