Higher Level Teaching Assistant / Teacher

At Cumbria Futures Federation we work at the heart of our communities. Our small secondary schools are inclusive, welcoming and ambitious.  With a wide range of abilities in each class and an innovative curriculum, our ‘Good’ schools punch well above their weight and provide a unique experience for our students.  In our schools, everyone is engaged in making continuous progress in a safe, inclusive and ambitious environment.

We are seeking a talented qualified or aspiring Higher Level Teaching Assistant to work with a range of students across a variety of curriculum areas.  We are happy to provide training and support to achieve HLTA qualifications if appropriate.  This role will involve delivering teaching to small groups, primarily including students with SEN. 

This role may also suit an newly qualified or early career teacher, particularly one who is confident to teach a wide range of subjects at KS3 level. 

We can offer a supportive and cohesive team and a challenging, interesting workload.  We have a range of students who need support, and we can tailor your timetable to your specialities – please let us know if you have a particular talent for supporting children with specific difficulties, or are particularly skilled in a subject area.  Our TA team works with the whole range of ages from 11 to 16, from small SEN groups to supporting high-fliers to achieve brilliant GCSEs.

We believe that every child is capable of making good progress and achieving great things.  Our ethos is to encourage independence, and to provide tailored support for each individual student.  

This role is working primarily at Beacon Hill Community School, but with the expectation that, if required, the successful candidate will also work in our partner school, Solway Community School in Silloth.

If you feel you share our values, then we would like to hear from you.  For an informal conversation about the role and what it is like working for us, please contact the school office to arrange a chat with our SENCO, Deputy Headteacher or Director of Finance & Operations.
