Teaching Assistant

Tameside, Greater Manchester
Tradewind are recruiting! Are you a creative and passionate Teaching Assistant, looking for a new opportunity in a small community school in Tameside?

Tradewind Recruitment is currently looking for an enthusiastic and innovative Teaching Assistant, to join a smaller than average secondary school, to start after October half-term. This is a full time, long term role, covering at least two full terms of maternity leave, paying up to £70 a day.

The candidate
To join us and be successful in this Teaching Assistant role, you will need to:
*Hold relevant qualifications up to TA Level 2
*Be subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure, Overseas Police Clearances (if applicable) and professional references checks
*Have a CV with 10 years employment history included and any employment breaks must be explained
*Have the legal right to work in the UK

The role
The role itself will involve supporting students in KS3 and KS4, in the classroom, and in small groups or 1 to 1. The ideal candidate will have prior experience of working with students with SEN and will ensure that the support they provide is tailored to students' needs. You will work with a range of students and subject areas, as well as the SENCO and classroom teachers, so you must be able to take initiative as well as follow direction.

This OFSTED 'Good' secondary academy is looking for a Level 2 Teaching Assistant that can deliver support students across all Key Stages and has knowledge of assisting students with a range of SEN, as well as a great personality for building rapport with staff and students alike. You must be a committed practitioner, who will want to attain the highest standards in teaching and learning throughout the role. You will need to be a collaborative and driven individual who will support and assist on the delivery of the subjects.

The school
We are recruiting on behalf of a small and well-established community school, which caters for students from 11 -16 years old. The school has recently partnered with a second school in the area, after being graded 'Good' with 'Outstanding' leadership; this was achieved through the SLT being extremely supportive of all staff members. They pride themselves on an induction programme leading to excellent professional development opportunities and are fully committed to the progress of their staff, as well as their students.

The school is based in rural Tameside, with excellent public transport links and ample parking available.

After visiting this school, I was incredibly impressed by the welcoming and inclusive feeling that is present throughout the corridors. The school has beautiful views of the Peak District.

As a Teaching Assistant, you will have the support of a cohesive and committed team of teachers who work collaboratively to maintain high standards and expectations, plus:
· a well-equipped school with great learning facilities
· the successful Teaching Assistant will be provided with a comprehensive induction package and a wide range of CPD opportunities for all staff
