• Do you want to make a really difference to some of the most vulnerable students in the city?
• Work at a new bespoke SEMH provision?
• Be part of the 45 million pound wider development of the academy across the city?
• Move away from the restrictions of a mainstream pathway?
• Have a passion to develop individuals with a more flexible curriculum than mainstream?
We require a creative HLTA at our South site who is passionate about providing the best possible education and care for vulnerable students. As we are a nurture based provision we follow a primary based model and post holders would get the opportunity to work across KS1-4 as required. You would have the opportunity to deliver Personal Learning and interventions. This is an exciting opportunity to get back to teaching children and play a significant part of their overall development. This could be a great opportunity to take full pastoral responsibility for a small group(s) as a stepping stone into teaching. We would provide full training to staff to support them in either of these areas.
This position would suit a candidate with a proven track record of being an advocate and supporting the learning of vulnerable pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). It would suit an individual who is passionate about making a real difference to students’ life chances and supporting them in achieving their potential in essential life skills, which is a high priority for Springwell Leeds. The ability to be creative and use imaginative flair to engage is essential, along with having resilience, drive and high expectations to inspire students to achieve. As we are a growing Academy with a teacher training school in the trust, it may also provide an opportunity of further opportunities in the future.
Springwell Leeds is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
