We have an exciting opportunity for two committed and enthusiastic teaching assistants to join our successful Personal Learning team on a fixed term basis, to support and raise the attainment of our students.
Working under the direction and supervision of teaching staff, you will assist with teaching and learning and associated activities in order to help students make outstanding progress through appropriate targeted interventions. As a teaching assistant you will also assist, when required, with the planning, delivery and evaluation of learning activities, supporting in whole classes and working with individuals and small groups of students.
The successful candidates will ideally have a relevant NVQ level 3 (or equivalent qualification), or recent proven experience of working effectively with young people at this level in a similar role in an education setting. Teamwork is an important part of this role and it is essential that you have excellent communication skills and the ability to engage and work with a range of school professionals.
This would be an excellent opportunity for a graduate or someone considering a career in teaching.
