Website: Welcome to Barton Hill Academy (

Required for an immediate start, this post is fixed term for one year in the first instance.

Barton Hill Academy, based in Torquay, Devon, opened September 2012 and is sponsored by Academies Enterprise Trust (AET). The Academy currently has 660 pupils on roll aged 3-11. We aim for every child to have a happy and active primary education in an environment that is caring and supporting. We aim to provide a stimulating and structured environment in which every child will be encouraged to reach their full potential.

We are looking for an Apprentice Teaching Assistant to join our school starting in September 2022, due to an increase in pupil numbers we require an additional Teaching Assistant to work from 8.30am - 3.20pm. This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic individual who is looking to gain experience and an apprenticeship qualification to create a wonderful place for staff and children alike.

You will complete a Level 3 Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship Standard. You may also be required to complete English and maths functional skills (depending on existing qualifications). Further information about the apprenticeship programme can be found here: 

Your Trainer will meet with you in the workplace every 4 weeks. In between these meetings you will have dedicated time away from your job to work on the apprenticeship and collate evidence for your apprenticeship e-portfolio with ongoing support from your Manager and Trainer.

This is an exciting opportunity to be in a real job, with real variety, from day one whilst working towards a qualification. The successful candidate will have excellent people and communication skills and will be flexible to adapt to changing situations.

To be eligible for the Apprenticeship, applicants must have resided in the UK or EEA for 3 years prior to the start of the Apprenticeship. Please note: applicants must not have already completed a Level 3 Teaching Assistant apprenticeship. AET has their own in house apprenticeship scheme and do not work with any other training providers to deliver Apprenticeships.
