Are you looking for a fantastic new opportunity?

Westbourne Academy is looking for a Higher Level Teaching Assistant for our English as an Additional Language department. Someone who strives to share their passion for education with our students and join our dedicated team of teachers to uphold the Academy’s vision and values.

About you:

We are looking for an individual who has drive, energy, a passion for teaching and learning and who relishes the opportunity to work with young people in a vibrant and dynamic learning environment.

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic, well organised, flexible and able to support students in the classroom. The students range from Year 7 to Year 11 and have a variety of support requirements. Previous experience of a role in an educational establishment is desirable but not essential. As this role requires supporting students in lessons, a level 2 or equivalent in English and Maths is essential.

For further information, please see the application pack for the role.

Candidates must have excellent communication skills, a flexible and collegiate approach to working, and show both creativity and resilience in approaching challenges. We welcome applications from ambitious candidates, keen to make a difference who have a genuine passion and belief in the potential of every student.

In return we will fully support the development of your career and you will be entitled to the generous ATT benefits package.

About us:

Westbourne Academy is not just a school it is a microcosm of the world with students from all around the globe. Between them, they speak 32 languages and their differing perspectives on learning and life makes this a unique academy in which to teach.

We welcome fresh ideas from our teachers and support staff and actively value their creativity and imagination. We’re passionate about innovative teaching practice, and we’re always keen to find new ways to stimulate our students’ learning.

Part of the Academy Transformation Trust, we are a disability confident employer, passionate about Diversity and Inclusion, welcoming all applications to join our team.

We believe in investing in our staff and we offer excellent career, training and professional development opportunities whilst continuing to be open to Flexible Working. You can also enjoy an exceptional package of benefits through our Together Programme.
