We are opening a new primary unit in Witham and would like to appoint two enthusiastic teaching assistants to join our committed and caring team across our Academy centres (please read the job description available below). Many of the young people who attend our provision arrive here at a point of crisis or conflict in their lives. It is our aim to ensure that we help them to regain a sense of confidence and self-esteem which allows them to compete on equal terms with their peers, despite the disruption to their education caused by leaving mainstream school.

This post is 37 hours a week, term time only at Scale 5 Pt 8-11. The salary will be between £17,490 to £18,561 - 44.5 paid weeks. The role will be based in Colchester initially, moving to our new school in Witham when it opens in January 2021.

Previous applicants need not apply.

Keys Co-operative Academy Trust is committed to safer recruitment practices and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all employees and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS check, medical clearance and satisfactory references.
