Community Teaching Assistant
Job reference: 002293
Location: Milton Keynes
Closing date: 29/07/2022
Salary: £10.09 - £11.10 per hour
Employment type: Term-time
Would a term- time role in education suit your lifestyle? No experience necessary - we will provide full training.
As a Community Teaching Assistant, you won't be confined to the classroom. You'll teach young people whose learning difficulties or autism mean that mainstream education won't always meet their needs. Using a tailored curriculum, you teach what is important for the individual: key life skills and appropriate lessons in literacy, numeracy and ICT.
You may be working with someone like Amanda*. She had been supported 2:1 in school and was not included in any of the group lessons. During her first term with us we developed a communication system that enabled Amanda to make active choices in her day and have control of how, where and what she was learning. This in turn made her more secure and confident in her learning and by using a communication method - pictures/visuals - that made sense to her we had a dramatic reduction in behaviours that challenge and Amanda was not only able to join in group sessions with peers but also made friends with other learners.
You'll work in the Milton Keynes area, working 38 hours a week on a 37 weeks a year contract.
Every day is different but one thing is the same: the achievement you will feel as you watch young people blossom into adulthood.

We provide a bespoke curriculum for each student, working with them at home, in the community, or via our College partnerships across the area. We teach the life skills each young person will need as they grow to adulthood, focusing on each student's particular interests and ambitions.
You will manage the planning and implementation of the curriculum, ensuring a full educational programme is developed for each young person, meeting their learning, social, emotional and developmental needs.
