The successful candidate will be part of our SEN team, working with students who experience difficulties in accessing the curriculum.

The objective of this post is to boost the numeracy and literacy skills of targeted students. The needs of the students will vary; some will have special educational needs such as Dyslexia or ASD.

Joining us, you 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 HLTAs, you will be expected to progress students’ learning and, with other professionals, support pupils’ social, emotional and physical wellbeing. It is necessary for you 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.

In return, you will enjoy a unique working environment in the heart of the Weald of Kent, discounts and offers with Kent Rewards employee benefit scheme, together with ongoing training and support to help you excel and develop your career. We also benefit from having an on-site nursery which offers discounts to Homewood staff.

Closing date: 5th January 2020, however early applications are encouraged as we review applications as we receive them.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all members of the community. Homewood School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all employees to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be asked to apply for an Enhanced DBS Disclosure.
