The Trustees are seeking to appoint an Enhanced Teaching Assistant for Sedgefield Community College with effect from November 2020 or sooner if possible.

Would you like to progress your career in an academy recently judged by OFSTED as ‘outstanding’, an academy where both student achievement and attitudes to learning are amongst the best in the entire North East and Cumbria region? Would you also like to work in a fantastic, recently built academy, set in one of County Durham’s most scenic areas? If the answer to each of these questions is ‘yes’ then Sedgefield Community College could be right for you.

We are seeking to add to our existing team of Enhanced Teaching Assistants someone who has the ability and motivation to help students overcome barriers that may otherwise prevent them from achieving as highly as their peers. A flexible and determined mindset are essential, as is the consistent expectation of the highest standards regardless of the situation. However, it is also expected that the person appointed will care passionately about student well-being, and will be someone that students recognise will both hold them to account for their work ethic and attitude, but at the same time will help and support them at times of difficulty.

Laidlaw Schools Trust is a growing multi academy trust in the North East of England, serving children and families in Sedgefield, the west of Newcastle and in Pennywell, Sunderland.

Our Academies also enjoy strong support from an experienced LST central team, based in Newcastle upon Tyne.
