We are seeking to appoint a teaching assistant to work as part of the English Department to support intervention with students who require additional mentoring to achieve GCSE. The successful applicant will be required to work with individuals and small groups across key stage 3 and 4 as required. Our staff are dedicated to securing the best possible outcomes for every student and are enormously proud of Ofsted’s Outstanding rating awarded in 2014. The hard work of both students and staff culminated in student progress placing the academy well within the top 5% of schools nationally and in 2016 88% of our students achieved A*-C grades including English and Maths placing us in the top 10 schools nationally on pupil progress.
Working as a Teaching Assistant is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in schools and contribute to the learning of students. The successful candidate needs to be extremely well organised, IT literate and have excellent communication skills both written and verbal. An A2 qualification in English is desirable as is a qualification in NNEB, NVQ3 or equivalent.
Visits to the Academy are warmly welcomed and encouraged.
Interviews are to be held on Thursday 29 June 2017
