The North School is looking to appoint a talented and enthusiastic Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) to work within our maths department.

The successful candidate will have a love of numeracy and hold at least an A Level in maths. The position would be ideally suited to an individual who is either considering going into teaching and is looking to develop their experience in an education setting, or who has some previous experience of maths (or math-related) teaching and enjoys working with individuals and small groups.

Where a candidate is considering a move into teaching, the school would support the right progression to completing Initial Teacher Training through Swale Academies Trust Direct programme after a successful HLTA year.

As an HLTA you will work both within maths lessons supporting students, but also lead 1:1 and small group sessions to support those who need additional help. You will work within an experienced and supportive department, collectively adapting and creating new activities and sessions, whilst tracking how students’ progress and support for them evolves.

This is an exciting opportunity in a role that is new to the school. If you are looking for a position where you will see the difference you are making every day, where you will work with committed and positive young people, with an opportunity to progress into teaching, we would welcome your application.

Information about the school

We are proud that The North School is a happy and improving school where students and teachers enjoy learning together. An experienced team of colleagues provide all students with the best possible opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom. Our teachers encourage all students to develop their resilience and independence.

Our students are expected to treat each other and staff with care, courtesy and consideration. They are taught to always try their very best at whatever they do and to value the progress they make as individuals. We value a community approach to education to ensure that there is a broad range of expertise within the school. This enables our students to be supported in all areas, so that they may strive to reach their full potential in school and in their future lives.

At The North School we recognise that the students are at the centre of the learning experience and that they all come with different needs and abilities, not to mention interests and strengths. Therefore, we continually review the curriculum diet available; to ensure that it best reflects the national picture and the needs of the students. This enables us to make the learning experience as skills based as possible with a broad range of subjects and an emphasis on personal achievement.

Working in partnerships with parents and the local community is important to us. Collaboration with parents to ensure that every student in our care reaches their full potential is highly valued. We encourage all parents to get involved in the life of the school. The well-established Parents’ Forum offers an excellent opportunity to influence the developments at The North School.

Our classroom practice and academic achievement is supported by a wide range of facilities that include a Basketball Academy, excellent sports facilities and clubs, a climbing wall and even a full working farm that has achieved great success at the Kent Show.
