We are seeking a Teaching Assistant to play a key role in providing education for vulnerable students who present challenging behaviours. As a Teaching Assistant at The Burton Academy, you will help to ensure that the education provision is of a high quality and that students are supported, motivated and challenged.

If you have the passion, resilience and determination to make a difference, this really is a great opportunity to become part of a small team where you can see the impact your interventions are having. Join us and help change young people's lives for the better.

As a Teaching Assistant, you will need to be resilient.

• Level 2 English and Maths;
• High expectations of students’ behaviour and clear strategies for working with challenging students;
