In this key role, you will work alongside teachers to support individual pupils and small groups with specific learning needs by promoting their learning and development and ensuring personal care needs of a specified pupil are met.

Whilst training will be given on some aspects of the personal care element of the role, we are looking for an organised and caring person who can engage pupils to inspire a love of learning. You must be passionate about helping all pupils succeed and be interested in the care profession. First-class communication skills are essential, as you will be required to communicate with colleagues, pupils, parent/careers and external agencies.

The Houghton Regis Academy is part of the Greenwood Academies Trust, which offers great development and progression opportunities, an attractive pension scheme and tax efficient childcare vouchers. This is a term time only appointment and this is reflected in the actual salary of £10,164 - £10,613.

Closing date: Noon on 30th November 2016.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks, therefore, all posts within the Trust are subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.

The Trust welcomes applications from all, irrespective of gender, marital status, disability, race, age or sexual orientation.
