Trinity Academy Grammar joined the Trinity Multi-Academy Trust in October 2018 and is now recognised under the body of word class schools. Working closely with outstanding leaders from across the trust, the academy is characterised by its high aspirations and ambitions. Targeted and effective support systems have been implemented in order to create an environment where our students experience an outstanding education with no limit to what they can achieve.
Our GCSE results over the last three years have validated the work we have already undertaken in the academy and the results our students have achieved means the academy can now be recognised as one of the most improved schools in the country. However, we are determined not to rest on our laurels and are always looking for ways to better serve our students.
All these fantastic and exciting initiatives require the expertise and commitment of dedicated staff and Trinity Academy Grammar now wishes to appoint an EAL Teaching Assistant. As a Teaching Assistant you will work closely with individuals and support teaching staff to meet the needs of all students to enable students to progress.
Knowledge or experience of working in an educational setting is desirable but not essential; we believe in getting the right people into our organisation. Training specific to an educational setting can be provided as required; our support staff receive weekly professional development as part of the job. Knowledge or experience working with people with visual impairments is desirable but not essential.
This would make an ideal position for anyone that is considering teaching as a career and wanting to gain some experience before starting their training; potentially within one of the schools within our multi academy trust. As part of the Trinity Multi-Academy Trust we have close links to the Trinity Institute of Education, which provides numerous routes into the profession.
What we need:
- Good numeracy and literacy
- Ability to relate well to children and young people
- Experience of working with, or caring for children or young people of a relevant age
What can we offer you?
- An opportunity to help shape the transformation of Trinity Academy Grammar
- Full support from a dedicated team of senior leaders and a large pastoral team
- Career progression and cross-trust working
- A range of staff benefits, including access to the West Yorkshire Pension Scheme, a Cycle to Work scheme, Electric Car Scheme and Westfield Health.
Our vision is to be the most transformational academy in England. If you would like to be part of our journey, we look forward to hearing from you.
