We want to hear from you if you have experience working in a secondary school or similar position supporting young people, particularly if you have experience dealing with more challenging behaviour or with any specific special educational needs. This role will involve supporting pupils on both a 1:1 and a group basis.

If you have experience working as a Teaching Assistant or have worked in a similar capacity, this is a great opportunity for you to work at a large modern school in Manchester where every day will be different, however some of the things you can expect to be doing are:

  • Delivering pre planned sessions to pupils on a 1:1 and group basis , whether this is inside the classroom or around the school
  • Ensuring all pupils are supported with their classwork and learning, assisting in the raising of attainment across the department
  • Supporting pupils with any SEMH needs they may have as well as assisting the teacher in effectively dealing with any pupils who show signs of challenging behaviour and promoting the schools behaviour policy
  • Work with the teacher and monitor pupils progress while planning development plans alongside the pupil to help them reach their potential
  • Assist in extra curricular activities, whether this is after-school clubs, helping during exams, or going on school trips

Our client school is a large modern Secondary School in South Manchester. The academy is a thriving, successful and increasingly ambitious organisation that works hard to secure the brightest future for all students. With state of the art facilities and a strong supportive SEN department, this is an excellent opportunity for a Teaching Assistant to gain further experience and offers them a real chance of advancing their career with progression opportunities within the school as well as access to Teaching Personnel’s further development and CPD programme.

The successful candidate will ideally have previous experience working in a secondary school as a Teaching Assistant, however we would consider applications from candidates with experience in a similar capacity, supporting young people in a different environment.
