Job description

Do you have experience working with children or young people?

Do you have an English based qualification?

Teaching Personnel are working alongside a Secondary Academy in Bolton who is currently looking to recruit extra Literacy Support staff following the October half term break. Due to an unexpected increase in students this September, our partner academy is in need of extra staff to ensure all students are supported, especially those at lower levels of learning.

  • Full-time role available following the October half term break for one term in the first instance, with the hopes of this continuing if the candidate is successful.
  • Work within the Literacy department supporting a number of students who require additional support with English.
  • Earn up to £300 per week, dependent on experience.
  • Opportunity to work with children who have learning difficulties and can show signs of challenging behaviour.

Application requirements

  • You must have experience of working with individuals who have learning difficulties or require extra support as these skills will be highly transferrable.
  • You must have an English based qualification or experience as a Literacy Support Worker previously.
  • Our client Academy has also mentioned they would prefer candidates to have experience working with challenging behaviour as some students can show occasional signs of disruptive behaviour as a result of their learning difficulties.

Working as part of the English department as a Literacy Support worker in our client Academy, successful candidates will be expected to:

  • Support specific pupils in small groups and occasionally on a 1:1 basis who require extra support with English.
  • Ensure the class teacher has the correct support they require inside and outside the classroom.
  • Expected to incorporate inventions to aid the student's learning and behaviour with the hopes of raising their progress and attainment.
  • Supporting students aged 11-16 across Key Stage 3 and GCSE.

Our client Academy is based in Bolton and can be accessed via the M61 and A58 from surrounding areas for those who have their own transportation. For non-drivers, there are several forms of public transport with links to several areas including Wigan, Bury and central Manchester.
