  • Closing Date 9:00am Wednesday 31st August 2022

Do you want to make a real difference in the lives of vulnerable pupils? Do you want to work in an inclusive, nurturing school? Do you want to be part of a Trust that supports career progression? If so, this is an exciting opportunity to join Elements Academy, our brand new special school for children with social, emotional and mental health needs in Rotherham (S25) as it opens its doors in September 2022.

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 of 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.
