Teaching Assistants - Clyst Vale Community College

  • Multiple Locations
  • Multiple Terms
  • Grade C £12,083 rising to £12,572 after 1 year (actual salary)

Clyst Vale is a thriving and vibrant 11-18 Community College situated five miles from Exeter. Visitors to Clyst Vale usually comment on the friendly, orderly atmosphere, the courtesy of our students and the purposefulness in lessons. We have clear expectations and systems, but far more important are the excellent working relationships we establish between staff and students, as well as staff and parents. We remain the only Secondary school in Devon to be accredited Silver Rights Respecting School status.

Clyst Vale has an excellent reputation for supporting students with SEND and, in order to do this, we need an equally excellent team of teaching Assistants to facilitate learning both inside and outside the classroom. Following the appointment of our new SENDCo, and a review of our provision, we are pleased to be able to offer a number of permanent and fixed term (until August 2023, due to funding) Teaching Assistant vacancies to start 1 September 2022.

The Roles
You will provide support for individual and groups of pupils within mainstream classes, and sometimes working one to one with a student, in a variety of subjects, including sports and outdoor education.

A warm, firm and caring approach with students is essential. No experience is necessary; however, GCSE (or equivalent) grade C Maths and English are required. In addition to our more traditional Teaching Assistant roles, we have two positions which will involve offering some intimate support to students in year 7. The requirement will be for their TA to supervise them when toileting and over-see them using their medical equipment. No specific experience is necessary as you will receive full training.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone who is looking to establish themselves as part of our excellent Teaching Assistant team or for someone who is looking to move into education and sees this as a potential steppingstone.

The Additional Support team works closely with subject teams, pastoral staff and parents to provide support for students with a wide range of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) but with a child-centred approach which looks to build upon success and enable all to fulfil their potential. The college works towards the effective inclusion of all students with SEND into mainstream lessons wherever possible while, at the same time, providing the necessary support to enable them to succeed.

Please indicate whether you are interested in a fixed term or permanent position, and whether you would like to be considered for the roles which include some personal care elements.
