Advert

New Line Learning Academy is an exciting school, which is rated Good by Ofsted in all areas. We are now expanding and looking to welcome a new inspirational Teaching Assistant who will work with students who have English as an additional language.

You will address the needs of children who require support with English as an additional language and who require support adapting to a new culture, so that they may access the curriculum and make excellent progress.

As well as working with students in the classroom learning environments, you will be required to:

  • carry out one-to-one/ small groups work with students to build literacy and language skills;
  • Work with KS4 students, focusing on academic language;
  • Support small groups in mainstream lessons;
  • Keep records updated (academic plans, progress, progress folders);
  • Adapt and create some resources.

Previous experience of working with children with English as an additional language would be an advantage and a Teaching Assistant qualification desirable.

The position is 37 hours per week (Mon-Thur 08:00 – 16:00pm, Fri 08:00 – 15:30pm), term time only, on a permanent basis.

We will offer you:

  • A vibrant and exciting place to work

  • The support of a Trust that currently encompasses two Secondary schools, one Primary school, and one Nursery for children aged 3 months to 4 years
  • An incredibly well-resourced department with schemes of work and resources available.
  • A trust that fosters a positive culture towards flexible working and work life balance.
  • An opportunity to join various schemes such as the Benenden corporate healthcare scheme
