New Forest Academy is a successful and popular 11-16 community school adjacent to the New Forest National Park and we are proud to serve the South Waterside community in Hampshire.

As a small school we are fortunate to be able to really get to know each and every student. Staff who work here see this a real benefit and you will join a school where tailored CPD and effective communication is firmly embedded. We are a ‘good’ school, with outstanding features.

If you are successful, you will join a school where all colleagues play their part and contribute to whole school improvement through our distributed leadership model. If you embody these values and have high expectations, you will be very successful working with us.

We are seeking to appoint a Teaching Assistant Apprentice to join our academy in September. As a Teaching Assistant Apprentice you will support teaching staff in the development and education of pupils, including the provision of specialist skills as appropriate.

You will complete a Level 3 Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship Standard. You may also be required to complete English and maths functional skills (depending on existing qualifications).

Your Trainer will meet with you in the workplace every 4 weeks. In between these meetings you will have dedicated time away from your job to work on the apprenticeship and collate evidence for your apprenticeship e-portfolio with ongoing support from your Manager and Trainer.

This is an exciting opportunity to be in a real job, with real variety, from day one whilst working towards a qualification. The successful candidate will have excellent people and communication skills and will be flexible to adapt to changing situations.

To be eligible for the Apprenticeship, applicants must have resided in the UK or EEA for 3 years prior to the start of the Apprenticeship. Please note: applicants must not have already completed a Level 3 Teaching Assistant apprenticeship. AET has their own in house apprenticeship scheme and does not work with any other training providers to deliver Apprenticeships.

Closing date : Friday 19th July 2024.

The role is due to commence in September 2024.

This will be a fixed term position and the duration of the apprenticeship will be determined by the job role and current skills. The typical duration of the apprenticeship is 21 months, however, can be longer or shorter depending on existing knowledge, skills and experience, up to a maximum length of 26 months.

Interviews are scheduled to take place as soon as possible after the closing date.

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early should we receive an overwhelming response. All candidates are advised to refer to the job description and person specification before making an application.

In line with our safeguarding practices we are unable to accept CV’s. Apply today.
