  • Engagement Hub Level 2 Teaching Assistant

    Posted: 17 Apr 2024Silverdale school

    We are looking for a passionate and inspiring Teaching Assistant to provide support inside and outside of the classroom within the Silverdale Engagement Hub.

    Silverdale School is seeking a highly skilled and experienced colleague committed to equality of education and the removing of barriers to learning for all students.

    We are investing in our students who find education within the classroom the most challenging. We are committed to removing all barriers to learning for all children. We know all students wish to achieve, be successful and happy and safe in school. Silverdale is establishing a provision where students have the opportunity to engage with the curriculum and culture of our school within a positive and nurturing environment, with high expectations and clear structures.

    The school is creating an innovative centre within school where students follow a bespoke engagement curriculum to help them navigate their way successfully back into the mainstream classroom.

    The post-holder will be working with a small group of students from Key Stage 3 in 12-week blocks, providing provision with an experienced and skilful Hub Co-ordinator. Students will be within the provision for a variety of reasons including low attendance and school refusal, literacy and numeracy, social and emotional needs and negative expressions of behaviour.

    In order to identify and address the barriers for learning and engagement, the curriculum will not follow the school day. Instead, a reduced timetable will incorporate pre-learning, over-learning, collaborative projects, bespoke interventions and community time in a nurturing environment. Ongoing monitoring, work with parents and mentoring of students following their 12-week experience will continue to address the complex reasons why a child is struggling to learn in the classroom and thrive.

    The successful candidate will play a key role in ensuring all students in our community are ready to learn, respectful and safe. In addition to excellent numeracy and literacy skills the essential requirements are excellent communication, inter-personal skills, the ability to deliver literacy or numeracy interventions and a desire to work with young people helping them to realise their potential.

    Experience of working with young people in a school setting is essential.
