Ivy Education Trust is seeking to appoint a Teaching Assistant. The post holder will have responsibility for being a key worker for identified students as well as working with other students across the school.

The successful candidate will:
- Be able to support students with a range of special educational needs including communication and interaction needs as well as social, emotional and mental health;
- Be able to motivate and work with students with special educational needs;
- Be able to read and scribe in both internal and external assessments.

The Ivy Education Trust works closely with all schools within the Trust and beyond. The Ivy Education Trust celebrates the diversity of each of its schools and is founded upon the alignment of vision and values that we all commonly hold to secure the best outcomes for our pupils.

The name of our Trust is inspired by the story of Dr Ivy Williams. Born in Teignbridge (Newton Abbot), in 1877, she managed what we would wish for all the children and young people of Teignbridge and surrounding area that we serve in our schools by fulfilling her childhood dreams and ambitions.

On 10 May 1922, Dr Ivy Williams became the first woman to be called to the Bar (formally recognised as a qualified Barrister of Law) of England and Wales.

The story of Dr Ivy Williams reminds us of the famous quote from Michaelangelo:
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

The Ivy Education Trust supports and challenges all members of our learning community to dream big, aim high and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.

If you share these visions and aspirations, then we very much welcome your application for this post.
