We are looking to appoint enthusiastic, hardworking Teaching Assistants to join our outstanding, dynamic Learning Support department. We are currently transitioning into a curriculum based model of support where TAs will be primarily based in subject areas. This is an outstanding opportunity for those looking to become a teacher, offering insight and close working relationships with departments. This would also be brilliant for those who have a passion and skills in a particular area of the curriculum. We are currently looking for TAs to support the following subjects:

  • Business and Computing
  • Drama and Music
  • French and German
  • Technology

We welcome applications from anyone interested in making a positive difference to the educational experience of young people with learning difficulties. Experience in the above areas is not essential as we will support successful candidates with a robust induction programme.

What you can expect from us:

  • A supportive school with staff well-being at its core
  • Up to date training on areas of SEN
  • Coaching and Mentoring opportunities
  • A dynamic department with career progression
  • Hard working students
  • An induction programme tailored to your needs

What we require of you:

  • A commitment to support our most vulnerable learners
  • A willingness to learn through experience and training
  • A passion for working with children with SEND.

We welcome applications from those with experience or those wishing to make their first journey into education and SEND.

If you are a passionate, creative and an organised individual who wants to have a real impact with students, this could be the role for you.

We operate a bike to work scheme and there is an early years nursery on site.

What our colleagues said in the June 2019 staff survey:

"Induction for new staff was useful and supportive."

"I feel staff wellbeing is given a high priority here and staff benefit from it."

"I am proud to be part of a school where every teacher matters and every student is cared about. I really value how much I am invested in and known personally by the senior leadership team, and the efforts the school puts in to ensuring its staff are happy and developing professionally."

"I have really appreciated all the opportunities there are at SWCHS for staff. I have benefited from and enjoyed the chance to participate in leadership programmes, CPD and trips."

Closing date: Thursday 10th June 1pm

Interviews will take place week commencing 14th June
