Langwith Bassett Junior Academy (part of Aston Community Education Trust), are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, conscientious and committed professional who believes all children can achieve high standards. We are committed to making a real difference to the lives of our young people and providing outstanding learning and enrichment opportunities for them throughout their time with us.  To be able to achieve this, we need to have a team of dedicated and outstanding staff, who will contribute to our exceptional learning community. 

We are seeking to appoint an ambitious and enthusiastic Level 2 Teaching Assistant, who will work with colleagues to support the learning and teaching of children in Langwith Bassett Junior Academy.  The post-holder will support access to learning for pupils by assisting the teacher, including the preparation of resources, implementing agreed work programmes both within and outside of the classroom, and provide general support in the classroom.

This role may be attractive to those who have attained a relevant level 2 qualification, or who may already be working as a Level 1 Teaching Assistant. Ideally the successful candidate will have experience of working with children in this age range (although this is not essential). 

Under the guidance of others the Level 2 Teaching Assistant will: 

  • Support the learning support team to establish an appropriate learning environment
  • Supervise and support pupils, ensuring their safety and access to learning
  • Work with pupils individually or in groups, either inside or outside of the classroom
  • Model and promote positive values, attitudes and behaviour
  • Complete observations of their key worker children
  • Encourage pupils to interact and work co-operatively with others, and to engage in learning activities
  • Encourage pupil to act independently as appropriate 

The role is based at Langwith Bassett Junior Academy but may, on occasion, involve working at other academies within the trust.
