Shire Oak Academy is a popular and innovative Academy under the leadership of our new Headteacher.

Do you want a new and rewarding challenge? Are you an experienced TA? Do you believe everybody deserves a quality education?

We are seeking to recruit TAs with experience working with children with special educational needs. The role will require you to be able to identify where a student needs extra support and provide them with such. You will be working closely with class teachers to ensure each student is engaged and gets the education they deserve. Enthusiasm, the ability to work as part of a team and the commitment to raising student achievement by removing barriers to learning are essential to the role. A GCSE qualification in English and Mathematics would be an advantage, along with a teaching assistant qualification.

This is an exciting opportunity to work as part of a great team and contribute to the positive environment. For a more detailed look at our Academy access our  website on www.shireoakacademy.co.uk.
