Teaching Assistant NCC Level 2 – 32.5 hrs/week, term time only (permanent)
  
(GLPC-D SCP 6-11 = £19,171-£21,166 pro rata = approx £14,420-£16,205 per annum)
  
Oak Field School is an Outstanding Special School (Ofsted 2018, 2014, 2011) for 168 pupils aged 3-19 with a wide range of learning and physical disabilities, broadly SLD (severe learning difficulties) and PMLD (profound and multiple learning difficulties). This also includes some pupils with challenging behaviours linked to SLD, some pupils with ASD, and some pupils with complex health needs. This is a permanent full-time post, to start as soon as possible, and there is also the additional possibility of a 1-year temporary full-time post.
  
We are seeking a proactive, enthusiastic, qualified and experienced Teaching Assistant with a strong background/interest in the field of SEN and Disability, ideally with Special School experience. A particular interest in supporting the learning of pupils with SLD/ASD who have challenging behaviours linked to their disability would be an advantage, as would experience of supporting the learning of children and young people with PMLD. The school would welcome applications from graduates with a degree in a relevant field as listed at the bottom of the NCC job description, who have a strong interest in/experience of this sector, and/or who might be considering a teaching career. Similarly, we would welcome applications from strong candidates who are nearing the end of their NVQ3 course in STL or other qualifications as detailed at the bottom of the job description. If in doubt re your qualifications, please contact one of the Deputy Heads before you apply – applications will only be considered at this level if you meet the qualification criteria.
  
The focus of a TA2 post at our school is to support personalised learning at all levels - this includes teaching, learning, assessment, behaviour management, and care; the successful candidate will be expected to be proactive in seeking and developing their own CPD. The school provides training in areas such as Makaton, Physical Intervention (we use NCC Approach), Moving and Handling, and Personal and Intimate Care (see appendix) to maximise access to learning. We also ensure access to multi-disciplinary training in physical management, and health tasks such as gastrostomy feeds, as appropriate. Although TAs work in a specific class, candidates are appointed to the school, rather than to a specific KS, to a particular area of Learning Difficulty, or to a particular pupil (class placement changes annually, by negotiation), and are expected to participate actively in the wider life and enrichment activities of the school.
  
Working hours for this post are Mon-Fri 8.50am-3.50pm, with 30 minutes lunchbreak.
  
Since Oak Field is a unique specialised educational setting within the city of Nottingham, we strongly advise that before you apply for this post you arrange to spend some time at the school experiencing a couple of different classes – please allow up to 1 hour for this visit. This opportunity is available at 9.30am or 1.30pm in the 2 weeks beginning Monday 6th and Monday 13th January 2020.
  
Please telephone Alison Kane (Office Manager) on 0115 915 3265 to book your visit.
  
If you are unable to make a visit, we strongly suggest you book an informal conversation about this post with Laura Wyatt or Matthew Riley (Deputy Heads) before you apply.
