We are working with a catholic secondary school in East London, described by Ofsted as "exceptional" who are currently looking to recruit a graduate teaching assistant to start ASAP. This will be working under the instructions of the SENCo and SEN department, assisting pupils who are on the SEN register, of all ages and abilities from Key Stage 3 to 4.

This secondary school is highly-regarded in the borough, through having a long history of success and has very recently been refurbished with incredibly impressive 21st century facilities. There are statemented pupils in each year group, who are supported by enthusiastic and experienced teaching staff who make full use of the school's well-equipped facilities, allowing them to give students the appropriate level of support to enable them to succeed academically and socially.

You will be expected to work in mainstream classes providing in-class support across the curriculum to students and also monitoring and managing poor behaviour to maintain class control and pupil focus. You will also work on a 1:1 basis with specific students, assisting them with their class work up to GCSE level. Other responsibilities include monitoring the behaviour and progress of small groups working on a supported curriculum and also assisting students with statements of special educational needs with their work in mainstream classes, under the instruction of the class teacher.

This role would be perfect for graduates interested in pursuing a PGCE or Teacher training program in the future, who are looking to increase their experience working in schools. Any successful applicants who impress may be considered for the schools own teacher training scheme.

The school is near 2 overground stations and is also accessible by a number of bus routes.
