Join East Anglia’s “State Secondary School of the Year” 2020
This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the UK’s leading comprehensive schools, recently ranked third nationally in the Sunday Times’ ParentPower publication for the second year running. Due to the continued expansion of the College, we are looking to recruit an outstanding and passionate Level 1 Teaching Assistant, to work in our exceptional SEND department with our wonderful students.
At IVC, inclusion is at the heart of our ethos and we have a large and highly regarded SEND Faculty with approximately fifty Teaching Assistants. We have students from 11-18 with a wide range of needs, some of which are very complex, including almost 100 students with EHCPs. We also have a post-16 provision and Enhanced Resource unit for young people with complex needs. We are fiercely proud of our commitment to inclusion and can offer a truly unique experience for those looking to develop their expertise within SEND. Our students access bespoke provision, with a mixture of small group and individual intervention, as well as fully participating in a mainstream education, regardless of their needs. We are also working closely with the Cavendish School, which will provide further opportunities for training and development.
The successful candidate must have the skills and experience to enable students to become independent learners and make progress. The successful candidate would support students with SEND in their lessons to ensure they meet their full potential. The ability to share your expert knowledge and experience through training and CPD sessions for other teaching assistants and teachers is essential.
Our Trust is committed to equal opportunities, to safeguarding and the promotion of the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. All staff are expected to chare this commitment and undergo the appropriate checks. All positions within the Trust are subject to enhanced DBS checks and satisfactory references. Only applications submitted on using the ELA application form will be accepted. We do not accept applications by CV.
