Governors wish to appoint enthusiastic and highly motivated Teaching Assistants to work with students and have the ability to inspire them in their learning.  This is an exciting time for the department, which is under new leadership and is a highly regarded department in the school.

The successful candidate is expected to be confident in having sufficient knowledge to move students forward with their learning at an appropriate level. We are looking for someone who is able to demonstrate excellent classroom practice in a supportive role as an outstanding practitioner.  Proficiency in the use of ICT to support learning and the ability to use a wide range of teaching strategies to meet the needs of all students is essential. Experience of working with students with ASC and ADHD would be an advantage.  Training will be available if required.  Applicants must have experience of an educational setting and have achieved a minimum of NVQ Level 3, or equivalent along with GCSE English and Maths or equivalent.
