Pennyman Primary Academy is seeking to appoint a pro-active, enthusiastic, energetic and reliable Level 3 Learning Assistant. These positions are based at Pennyman Primary Academy, though we are always happy for staff to transfer between academies at later dates should positions arise.
As a Level 3 Learning Assistant, you will work alongside our teachers, helping pupils to get the most out of their learning. The main feature of your role will be to support individuals or groups of pupils with their learning both in, and outside the classroom. In addition, you will support our teachers in organising the learning environment.
Daily tasks may include:
• setting up equipment and getting things ready for lessons.
• helping pupils who need extra support to complete tasks.
• listening to children read, reading to them or telling stories.
• comforting and caring for children if they have an accident or are upset.
• helping the teacher to maintain records.
• helping and leading on academy activities, sports events and outings.
• undertaking observations of children and recording the outcomes of assessment.
As a Level 3 Learning Assistant, you may also be required to supervise a class of children in the event of a teacher’s absence.
In return, we can offer you the opportunity to join a supportive and enthusiastic team who are committed to engaging and inspiring children’s learning and life chances. We have a strong inclusive ethos and a superb partnership arrangement within our academies as part of Tees Valley Education Trust. In addition, we are fully committed to your ongoing professional development.
We are looking for people who have a genuine interest in working with children: are interested in their development and learning and have good organisational and communication skills. We ask that all staff working with our children hold qualifications in English and Mathematics that are at least equivalent to GCSE grade ‘C’. Qualification as a teaching assistant is desirable, though not essential.
Tees Valley Education Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All appointments will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.
Applications are invited from prospective candidates who are able to demonstrate that they are able to meet the essential criteria set out in the person specification and who have the vision, values and tenacity to join an outstanding team and help continue the journey towards excellence.
