The successful candidate will be part of our SEN team working with students who experience difficulties in accessing the science curriculum.
The objective of this post is to boost the scientific skills, alongside numeracy and literacy skills of targeted students so they can access the science curriculum. The needs of the targeted students will vary; some will have special educational needs such as Dyslexia or ASD.
The appointed HLTA would generally work with small groups of students, within the main classroom, to ensure students’ progress and to boost their confidence. The role will involve planning, preparing and delivering group work or team teaching with the main class teacher.
As with all HLTA’s the post holder will be expected to progress students’ learning and with other professionals support pupils’ social, emotional and physical wellbeing. It is necessary for the candidate to have qualifications in Maths/Numeracy or English/Literacy equivalent to at least NVQ Level 2. An HLTA qualification or evidence of working at this level would be advantageous.
