Would you like to work part-time or full time in an excellent secondary school in Glastonbury?
Five Education is excited to share a new opportunity to join a well-regarded secondary school in Glastonbury. The school requires support with a small SEMH (Social Emotional Mental Health) class. The role is for a HLTA (Higher Level Teaching Assistant) who can deliver maths.
The class is a small group of children who have missed a significant amount of school, therefore are working at a lower level than their peers.

The HLTA will be able to address the children's individual SEMH needs whilst teaching them maths. They will have the ability to establish positive and trusting relationships. The right person will have a supportive and engaging style of delivering maths.
This modern school is set in the vibrant town of Glastonbury. The hours are 8.30-15.30. The pay rate is between £75-£100 per day, this is inclusive of holiday pay. The school will consider either part-time or full time.
