2x Teaching Assistant L2 in Blackburn

Job description

Catholic Blackburn Primary School

'Challenging' catchment area which requires strong behaviour management

Level 2 Teaching Assistant award or above qualification is required

I am currently seeking two L2 qualified Teaching Assistants to work in a Blackburn Primary School. The School is located ten minutes from the town centre and commutable by car and bus, or by bike if you fancy it? The Head teacher is keen to promote the Catholic faith in school and so you must be able to support this with confidence and with the correct subject knowledge. The two roles will start ASAP and run until at least May half term on a supply basis; the school are then looking to appoint permanently through their own internal recruitment process.

The working hours will be 9-1530 with ½ welfare cover. The school is currently graded as GOOD by Ofsted and also holds a GOOD RE inspection. The Head teacher has implemented a strong and consistent behaviour policy which the children respond to really well. It is therefore important that if you are successful, that you are able to fit into the team and implement the policy effectively.

In the past, the school have used Teaching Personnel and taken staff on to permanent contracts. This could be an excellent opportunity which could lead to a full time contract. This won't come without the right attitude in school though. You must be enthusiastic and passionate about raising standards in school and be able to build strong working relationships with children, staff and parents. As the school falls in a socially deprived area of Blackburn, you will need to be able to liaise with a variety of individuals, some who may be aggressive!

If you are interested then please do not hesitate to contact me in the office on 01772 842154.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualification and training for this role. For teacher roles, we require a formally recognised teaching qualification. For Support staff our minimum requirement is GCSE English & Maths (A-C) or equivalent.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
