Teaching Assistants





  • Teaching Assistants

    Closing date: Monday 30th September 2019

    We are looking to appoint Teaching Assistants with the proven ability to care for and inspire our students.  We want to prepare our students with SEND for adult life by maximising the achievement of each and promoting their independence within the Academy and beyond.  The person we appoint will ideally have successful previous experience of working with students with SEND in a secondary school setting. Most important though are the personal qualities of integrity, positivity, drive and commitment to each and every one of our students.  If you have these qualities we can probably teach you the rest!
