About the role
Are you a bright and experienced Teaching Assistant, confident in your ability to deliver effective speech, language & communication programmes?
We are seeking to appoint a Speech & Language Teaching Assistant to support pupils predominantly, but not exclusively, in EYFS and KS1 for 30 hours per week, Monday - Friday.
Ark Blacklands is a popular and over-subscribed school in the heart of Hastings. As part of the Ark schools’ network we are committed to making sure that every child has access to a great education and real choices in life. We know that great schools need great staff, which is why we offer you the very best training and support at every stage of your career.
This is a newly created, permanent vacancy in our school in response to the growing number of children joining us who require support with Speech, Language and Communication development. The role will involve leading the implementation of work programmes for identified children, assisting in the planning, management and preparation of resources. We can offer you a friendly, supportive school and opportunities for professional development.
The successful candidate will:
• Be a confident, resilient and determined Speech, Language and Communication Teaching Assistant with previous experience in Speech & Language support.
• Have Makaton & PECS experience or be willing to undertake training in this area.
• Be empathetic and ensure the schools values underpin all that they do.
• Work closely with students, parents, and staff to unlock full potential.
• Use an exciting and innovative approach to learning, both on a 1:1 and group basis.
• Be flexible and confident to support across the school, including those who have additional needs.
If you have a passion for education, we can offer you support and challenge to develop further. By joining the Ark schools network, you will gain access to an exclusive range of benefits including comprehensive CPD, reduced gym membership and large retail discounts.
Ark Blacklands Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding children; successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
