Teaching Assistants – Term Time

The school wishes to appoint two enthusiastic and energetic Deaf Specialist Teaching Assistants to work with Deaf/deaf children across the curriculum.  The successful candidates will have good communication and interpersonal skills.

The Teaching Assistants will work closely with the Teacher of the Deaf, who is in charge of the Deaf Resource Base and other Teaching Assistants, and will be working with deaf students. Sign language skills are desirable, otherwise a willingness to commit to learning BSL will be considered.

We are a total communication team of highly motivated professionals with a holistic approach to the children’s learning and achievements. The ideal candidate will have BSL Level 3 or above and have experience of working with Deaf young people in an educational setting. St Gregory’s will consider suitable applicants who are willing to commit to achieving a BSL level 3 qualification. The people appointed must be able to differentiate work across all subjects in mainstream classes and should therefore be educated to A level. They will also be working 1:1 with Deaf/deaf students to improve their BSL, literacy and numeracy skills.

Hours of work will be Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4pm, (32.9167 hours p.w.), term time only plus 5 non pupil days. The salary is Kent Range 6, £20,585 - £22,469 (£15,752 - £17,194 pro rata), depending on signing skill level.

Your pro rata salary includes your paid holiday entitlement which is accrued and calculated based on the hours and weeks worked per year.
