All of our Teaching Assistants play an important role in assisting with support for students to enable them to access the full range of curricular opportunities (academic and enrichment) the College has to offer. 

The post holder will work under supervision and direction, usually within the classroom providing general support and assistance as part of a professional team, through the organisation and day to day maintenance of teaching resources and administrative support. 

Under the guided direction of the teaching staff, the post holder may occasionally (but not regularly) support learning which takes place outside of the main teaching area with small groups.  This would be dependent on the member of staff having developed the appropriate experience and skills.

This is an exciting opportunity to join Westcountry Schools Trust, currently employing approximately 1500 staff and growing. We are a dynamic organisation with our students and staff at our heart.  Built on an extensive track record of excellence, the Trust combines a range of secondary colleges, primary schools and business units based in a variety of sites across Devon and Cornwall.  We are also a stone’s throw from some of the best beaches and countryside in the country.
