Do you have a desire to achieve and succeed - both for yourself and students? Are you enthusiastic, well organised and engaging?
Plume Academy is seeking to employ a number of Teaching Assistants to join our successful SEND Faculty and assist in the support and development of students with special educational needs. This is a wonderful opportunity to assist students in learning effectively on their own and in a group as well as encouraging the acceptance and integration of students with special educational needs.
Minimum qualifications in Maths and English at a C grade or equivalent are required. Previous experience, particularly of working with children and young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties is desirable. These roles may also involve supporting students who follow a vocational timetable, which includes supporting students on their college and work experience placements off site.
Plume Academy is a friendly, supportive and aspirant educational establishment where the professional development of all staff is given a high priority. Plume's very positive last Ofsted inspection in January 2018 judged the Academy as 'Good' in all areas, including the Sixth Form.
Plume Academy is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, Trustees and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments are therefore subject to satisfactory DBS and Immigration checks, together with the receipt of satisfactory references and only applications submitted on the Academy's application form will be considered.

Closing date: 9am on Tuesday 24 September 2019
