Part of Wellspring Academy Trust, Springwell Leeds is an exciting partnership development between Leeds City Council and Springwell Leeds Academy.
Exciting opportunities are available for people looking for a fresh challenge in an inspiring learning environment where we provide children with ‘second chance’ learning. The posts will suit candidates who have the commitment, passion and resilience to make a difference to pupils who have a range of social, emotional, mental health and special educational needs. These posts are for staff who will support the learning of SEMH students in the classroom as part of a team of 3 staff with up to 9 students.
SCALE 2 TA (Point 3-4) TEACHING ASSISTANTS – 37 HOURS (TTO + 5) FTE SALARY £18,065 TO £18,426 (ACTUAL SALARY £15,382 - £15,689)
These positions may suit those wishing to develop a career within the Special Education Sector. College/University graduates are welcome to apply, as full training will be offered to candidates wishing to develop a career in this setting. The positions may be of particular interest to applicants who have a passion in supporting the emotional and mental health needs of young people.
Our partner school, Springwell Special Academy, Barnsley is a National Teaching School (Barnsley Positive Regard Teaching School) and is therefore able to support a career path for aspiring teachers through a rigorous development programme. There is one post available at each of our three sites as we are adding capacity to our strong support teams. These buildings are part of an exciting £45 million pound investment in the city into SEMH provision. Post holders will be responsible for supporting and leading small groups and individuals with Maths, English, reading, S.E.A.L, practical activities, supporting pupils to develop resilience, social skills and self-esteem plus using effective strategies for supporting pupils with a range of behavioural conditions (ASD/ADHD/SEMH/ODD).
