£24,496 – £26,845 FTE

Dayspring Trust is a strong Church of England Multi-Academy Trust, with Secondary Schools in Stockton and Sunderland. We are currently in the process of a merger to bring Dayspring Trust and Northern Lights Learning Trust together in Spring 2023, so this is an exciting time to join us.

We are looking for a hardworking and organised Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA), who will join a supportive English department that seeks to ensure all pupils make the progress of which they are capable.

The role entails a range of different aspects designed to best help our pupils. The successful candidate will work in lessons to assist learners in accessing all elements of the English curriculum, collaborating closely with a talented teaching team to support pupil understanding. Having a good knowledge of the English curriculum and how to adapt materials to support learning would be beneficial.

The HLTA will also work closely with our Literacy lead to organise, plan and deliver a range of reading interventions before, during or after the school day. The successful candidate must therefore have the presence and confidence to work independently with small groups of pupils. Good I.T. skills would also be advantageous, as the monitoring and tracking of the impact of these interventions is a vital aspect of the role.
If you want to help pupils of all abilities to learn as effectively and self-sufficiently as possible, we would welcome your application.
