About the Role

The Access to Education Service would like to recruit a highly skilled and self-motivated Higher Level Teaching Assistant in the North East of Surrey. We provide education for students, aged 5-16 who are out of school, many of whom may have complex needs including medical/mental health issues, SEN, and/or challenging behaviour. We are looking for a candidate who is committed and has a ‘can do’ approach. You should be able to work flexibly both on your own and as part of a team; and be innovative in your approach with a real desire to make a difference to the learning outcomes of children and young people.

You should be confident to build positive relationships, having an understanding of the challenges that face young people. Enabling our students to overcome these barriers to learning is a key part of our work.

GCSE English and maths (or equivalent) are essential, along with excellent I.T. skills, preferably with an understanding of using a virtual learning environment. You should have HLTA status or significant Teaching Assistant experience.

Successful candidates will be expected to travel extensively around the NE area, including Epsom and Ewell, Spelthorne and Elmbridge. The NE office is based in Elmbridge Civic Centre, Esher.
