Teaching Assistants Wanted for September 2013

We have three fixed term posts starting in September 2013 to support classes or individual pupils.
We would seek candidates with a passion for supporting high quality learning within an inclusive environment. Previous school based experience would be desirable for the post, however a willingness to undertake training in order to understand the needs of pupils is most essential.

POST ONE:One term fixed maternity cover from September 2013 to end of December 2013 as a teaching assistant for a Year 1/2 class

POST TWO:One year full- time and fixed term from September 2013 working to support 1-1 pupils with autism in the junior department.

POST THREEOne year fixed term post of approx 20 hours a week, supporting a pupil in Year 2 with autism. This post will be made up of five mornings and two afternoons a week. Whilst the majority of the hours are school based, there will be a requirement to undertake specialist training in ABA (Applied Behavioural Analysis) and some hours will be allocated to support home based educational objectives. Home based work will be with the parents and an additional specialist tutor who will provide training in ABA techniques and pedagogy.

The closing date for these posts will be 9.00 a.m. on Monday 1st July 2013. Please complete an application form stating which post you would be interested in and return it directly to deputy@highfieldschool.co.uk. Interviews are likely to take place on Tuesday 2nd July and appointments will be made subject to references.
