About Ethos Academy Trust

Ethos Academy Trust is located in Kirklees and Wakefield, West Yorkshire and Rotherham, South Yorkshire. The overarching aim of the Trust is to create academies that provide environments that are welcoming, caring, calm, safe and purposeful and that, within a nurturing ethos, stretch our learners academically, support them pastorally and develop them socially and emotionally.

We seek to explore and celebrate the qualities that make our pupils unique. We believe passionately that education, at every stage of the pupil journey, is about the development and nurture of the whole child. We aspire for all our pupils to become confident, happy and caring individuals who achieve personal success and develop a love of learning and of life.

In addition to what will soon become six academies (Ethos College, Reach Academy, Engage Academy, Evolve Academy, Elements Academy and Enrich Academy), the Trust provides wide-ranging early intervention outreach support and training to mainstream schools, alongside managing the statutory exclusions process on behalf of Kirklees and Wakefield Local Authorities.


This is an exciting opportunity to join Ethos Academy Trust, where we aim to deliver the very best educational experiences for pupils from across the primary and secondary age range. Our academies are welcoming, calm and purposeful and, within a nurturing ethos, our learners are stretched academically, supported pastorally and developed socially and emotionally.

We are looking for Teaching Assistants who will provide positive and aspirational outcomes for pupils with complex social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs through high-quality support and engagement, supporting transition and securing their physical and emotional wellbeing, whilst raising their self-esteem and encouraging independence.

You will possess GCSEs (A*-C) in Maths and English (or equivalent) or alternatively, you will hold a relevant qualification at level 2 (or equivalent). It is desirable that you have experience working with children with special educational needs in KS2, 3 or 4 with SEMH needs. In addition, you will be able to communicate information in a clear and logical manner and be proactive and positive in your approach.

Our Teaching Assistant positions present an excellent opportunity for candidates who are potentially looking to gain experience to progress into teaching or for those who aspire to work within the area of Social and Emotional Mental Health. We are ambitious for growth and the development of our staff members and pupils and as such, there will be opportunities for progression within the Trust for successful candidates.

In return, we are able to offer a welcoming Trust with supportive management and a strong programme of staff development. You will receive exceptional support through our
outstanding staff teams who are skilled at working with young people with needs across the SEMH range.

Closing date: 9th January 2023 at 9am
