Teaching Assistants – Grade C

Due to retirement, promotion, maternity and moving on to a new venture, we will shortly be requiring 4 highly skilled Teaching Assistants / Aspirant Teacher (Grade C).   All applicants must have a Grade C or equivalent in English and Maths GCSE.  3 of the roles are full-time, permanent posts and 1 is a full-time temporary post to cover maternity. Hours will be 30.75 hrs per week over 39 weeks.

The ideal applicants will preferably have an NVQ3, or equivalent, or a degree if aspirant teacher.  We are looking for enthusiastic and hardworking, creative practitioners, able to motivate and inspire pupils. We have a track record of providing excellent opportunities for aspirant teachers who have since successfully gained QTS.

The closing date for applications is midnight Friday 28th June 2019 and interviews scheduled for the Wednesday 10th July 2019.   The successful candidates will start in September 2019 (permanent positions) or October 2019 (maternity cover).
