The Esteem North Academy is seeking flexible, committed, enthusiastic and highly skilled Specialist Teaching and Learning Assistants, to deliver off -site English, Maths and Personal Social Development sessions to a caseload of pupils from either the High Peak or Chesterfield areas.

The academy provides statutory education to children who are at risk of, or have been, permanently excluded. Pupils who attend the academy have challenging and often complex needs and may exhibit behaviours that prevent them from attending a mainstream school.

The successful candidates will inspire, motivate, and support pupils to reach their full potential, by providing education at off-site venues or pupil’s home. We have developed a variety of bespoke learning pathways to meet the needs of our pupils. This role is to ensure that all pupils receive an education even if they are not school site or group ready.

Applicants should have good knowledge and experience of working with disaffected pupils in KS3 and 4 in a school or other alternative setting. An affinity for pupils with behaviour, emotional and social difficulties is an essential quality for this challenging but rewarding opportunity. Applicants should be resilient, have high expectations, and a sense of humour. You will be working in pupil’s homes and so must be able to build relationships with families and other external agencies. This post will involve lone working.

The role will have an allocated base where mileage will be calculated from. Mileage is claimed for this role monthly in arrears. There may be travel to our other academy sites for meetings, Inset and CPD. You are required to have daily access to transport with business use included on your car insurance before you begin the role. You may be required to transport pupils in your own car, carry out some home learning or safe and well visits for non- attenders to support the pastoral team. Home to base mileage cannot be claimed for.

Benefits include: LGPS Pension Scheme, Westfield Health membership, academy laptop.
