The objective of this post is to provide support to targeted individual students, small groups and classes during Key Stage 3 English lessons.  The needs of the 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.  The successful candidate will also be expected to deliver interventions to targeted students focusing on pre and post teaching of Key Stage English set texts, exam skills and vocabulary.

As with all HLTAs the post holder will be expected to progress students’ learning and with other professionals to 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.  A Level 5 Dyslexia qualification, an HLTA qualification or evidence of working at this level would be advantageous.
