The job itself

An opportunity has arisen for a suitable individual to work within The Hessle Academy as Higher-Level Teaching Assistant at Hessle High School commencing ASAP.

The Academy

At Hessle Academy, we think our learners are extraordinary. Each year they achieve outcomes that are consistently above the national average while regularly dazzling us with their talents in the Arts and Sport.

We couldn’t achieve this without our staff – our greatest asset. They are talented, professional, immensely dedicated to the success of our learners and committed to their own professional development.

At Hessle Academy, we value our staff and take their wellbeing seriously, with a commitment to reducing workload over the next three years, an annual staff Wellbeing Day and an active staff social committee. Consequently, Ofsted (September 2018) noted that, ‘morale is high’.

As one of the schools in The Consortium Academy Trust, we offer significant career development opportunities for our staff and we expect your commitment in return. We think our learners deserve it.

The Candidate

We’re looking for a dedicated individual to provide tailored support to our students. You will be committed to making a positive difference to young people’s lives and in supporting and developing their learning. Your intervention will help enable an outstanding learning environment for our students, providing the support they need to succeed.

The successful candidate will be energetic and solution focused, an individual who can work effectively as part of a very committed team. Excellent communication and inter-personal skills are an absolute necessity, as are superb organisational and technical skills.

You will have the ability to effectively support learning and teaching, and to develop relationships across our Academy.
