Although full-time is preferred, part-time will be considered.

This post would entail working in the classroom supporting students with a range of special educational needs.

Previous experience of working in an education setting and/or with young people is desirable.  You will be working in a forward thinking, supportive department where emphasis is on the education and care of the students.

We encourage our Teaching Assistants to engage in professional development to support their understanding of SEN provision. You will be invited to lead on a particular area of need, such as Dyspraxia, Autism or ADHD. If you decide to take up this opportunity, you will work alongside the SENCo to deliver training sessions to staff and liaise with parents where appropriate. Strong candidates will also have the opportunity to train as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant and deliver interventions to small groups of students.

This post would also suit someone looking for experience before embarking on a career in teaching. We will support your professional development through CPD sessions led by the school SENCo and our dedicated Teaching and Learning team who can help explain the process, support applications and help prepare you for the world of teaching.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop your understanding of classroom practice and effective interventions.

Closing Date: 12 (noon) on Monday 4 July 2022

Interviews to follow shortly after
