Job description

Teaching and Learning Support Assistant - Burnley (BB11)

Experience required in planning and delivering small grouped intervention sessions

Level 2 qualification or above is a necessity

A small school in the heart of Burnley have approached Teaching Personnel in order to source a specialist Teaching and Learning Support Assistant to work alongside the class teacher; planning and delivering high quality intervention sessions. The role is to work from Easter until Summer in the Year's 3 & 4. The successful candidate will be one who has good experiences working in the middle primary years and someone who can use their own initiative to raise standards in Reading and Writing. The school are hoping to gain their best ever KS2 Reading and Writing results and to ensure they do this the Head teacher and SENCO have selected a number of children who would benefit from an intense booster programme.

On a daily basis you will be working with children aged 7-9 years. These children are mainly working at lower than expected age related levels for Reading and Writing. The majority of children in the two classes arrive from socially deprived backgrounds and have little academic support at home. There are some behavioural needs in the two classes and so it is important that you can use a range of strategies to ensure poor behaviour does not impact on learning and the development of the children's Reading and Writing.

The school in Burnley is located 5 minutes from the M65 and is perfect for public transport links. There are already a number of staff working in school through Teaching Personnel and the general reviews are positive for the way the Head teacher runs the working day. The School is graded GOOD by Ofsted from a recent inspection in 2016 and within the report the Head teacher was commended for her 'attention to detail' and the 'positive relationships she builds with the children, their parents and the staff in school'.

In order to apply for this role, you must have the following;

An accredited Level 2 qualification in Teaching and Learning in Schools.

Prior experience in a KS2 class, supporting children with additional needs or with Reading and Writing.

Flexibility to work - 6 hours a day, Monday to Friday, 8:45 - 3:30

A Child Workforce DBS on the update service.

GCSE C or above in Maths and English

The School have also specified that it would be preferable to have the following;

A specialism in English Language, Literature or Linguistics at A-Level or Degree Level.

Prior experience in delivering small grouped Reading and Writing interventions.

Experience working alongside children with challenging behaviour and special educational needs.
