The job itself

TMWS is looking to appoint a Teaching Assistant -

· Do you enjoy working in a busy and vibrant environment?

· Do you have excellent interpersonal skills?

· Do you have a love of working with children?

· If you are excited by your answers to the above questions then you may be the right candidate to join #TeamTMWS

Apprenticeship applications will also be considered.

We are a small school, proud of our traditional rural heritage, yet ambitious for the future of all our students. Our size is a real strength as it enables students and their families to work closely with the teaching and support staff at the school, building positive working relationships. We believe that students achieve best in a supportive and positive environment – and that is what you will find in our school.

Due to our expanding Enhanced Resource Provision for students on the autistic spectrum, we require a level 2 Teaching Assistant to support students with Special Educational Needs. Experience working with students with Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome is preferred, however TMWS would consider an apprentice for any candidates without qualifications who have an enthusiasm to support young people.

As a school with a growing number of SEN students we can offer opportunities for CPD and career progression at all levels within our dedicated team of teaching assistants.

TMWS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults, and expects all staff to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

For further details, please see the school website, call or e-mail Sarah Florence. Candidates are welcome to visit the school prior to formal application.

Online applications close on 2 October. Applications will be received at the school up until 12noon on 3 October.
