What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for a pro-active and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant. The successful applicant will contribute to the inclusion work within school by helping to raise standards of achievement for pupils with SEND. The post will include supporting pupils with SEND across KS3 and KS4, both in class and on a 1-1 or small group basis within our Student Support Centre. Experience of working with primary school age pupils and first aid is desirable but training will be given to the successful candidate.

What the school offers its staff

The Joseph Whitaker School is a popular oversubscribed school of 1380 students with attainment levels above the national average at both GCSE and post 16. We were inspected in March 2019 and the school was again judged as being “good”. It is worth reading the Ofsted letter as this gives a true flavour of our school.

Commitment to safeguarding

The successful candidate will have to meet the requirements of the person specification in order to be offered the post, will be required to undergo a full enhanced DBS check and must be eligible to work in the UK. The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Safeguarding checks will be undertaken during the recruitment process and this may include online searches.

We welcome applications regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or religion.
