    We are seeking to recruit a Teaching Assistant with a passion for working in education and working with young people. The ideal candidate will see this as a training post for a potential career as a teacher or within the wider field of education and/or working with young people.


    In line with up-to-date research, we use effective models of supporting in-class that allow students to be as independent as possible, while receiving the scaffolding they need to ensure they can achieve. Teaching Assistants communicate closely with the subject teacher so that they gain experience in co-planning and co-delivering parts of lessons, and they are there to support the whole class, not just one individual. Teaching Assistants are expected to know the curriculum of the subject(s) in which they support, as well as to know the particular Special Educational Needs of students in their classes.


    We can offer you:

    • Access to our Teacher Training School – we see this role as an excellent stepping stone for a career in teaching

    • Regular access to in-school training opportunities, to develop your understanding of a wide range of Special Educational Needs as well as to further your wider professional development

    • A positive, friendly and welcoming environment.

    • The expertise and support of colleagues across the Future Academies Trust.
