EAL Teaching Assistant
At Leeds we’re committed to creating opportunities which enable our young people to reach their potential and as such, we’re looking for an enthusiastic and talented Teaching Assistant to complement and reinforce our EAL (English as an Additional Language) provision across the academy.
Working in partnership with, and under the direction of our class teachers, you’ll provide support for students and guide our young people to overcome and improve their barriers to learning and support them to improve their English.
Support may be provided on a whole-class, specific cohort, or one-to-one basis both in and outside of the learning space, sometimes encountering challenging behaviour and a wide range of abilities and needs. These could be specific learning needs, engagement issues and/or challenges with social, emotional and mental health and will truly mean that no two days are the same. It’s therefore imperative that you possess a high-level of emotional maturity and resilience and can adapt to changing priorities.
And of course, you’ll do all this whilst capturing the spirit of our vision and values and whilst role-modelling exceptional professional behaviours.
As a colleague at Leeds you’ll work within a diverse learning community, striving to deliver an outstanding working and learning experience for all. Therefore, a genuine passion for working and making a real difference in the community is essential.
So, if you thrive on making a real difference to the lives of children and young people, seeing them develop and achieve their potential, then we’d be delighted to hear from you.
Completed applications should be returned to Dianne Singleton, HR Admin Assistant on firstname.lastname@example.org before the closing deadline of 9.00 a.m. Thursday 23rd November 2023
