We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join our team of Learning Support Assistants by working closely with class teachers and the school SENCO to support students to enable learning.
The main focus will be around literacy and numeracy. This can be through in-class support or on a one to one basis, though you will be expected to work with small groups or take on a more general teaching assistant role at times.
You will need to be flexible and have excellent inter-personal and communication skills. You will need to demonstrate competence in supporting students within a learning environment to encourage them to achieve and make good progress.
We would welcome your application if you have experience of comparable paid employment in a secondary school setting or hold an NVQ2 or equivalent qualification.
