Job Advert Location Description

Eastwood Grange School is a specialist day school located in the village of Ashover, near Chesterfield for boys aged 9-18 years.  The pupils exhibit a variety of severe and complex educational, social, emotional and mental health difficulties, which have impeded personal developmental and educational success.  Many of the pupils have a number of diagnoses.  Our pupils have failed in, or have been failed by, a variety of settings before coming to Eastwood Grange School. They arrive at Eastwood Grange very disengaged with education and life after having experienced many break downs and trauma.      

Job Advert Role Description

At Eastwood Grange School, we have a number of students who for a variety of reasons are unable to access the school site and as such receive bespoke packages of education at a range of off-site provisions and community based centres such as local libraries and our sister site, The Beacon, in Sheffield. We are looking for a self motivated, creative individual to become part of our off-site team. This post will be working with pupils, more often than not, on a 1:1 basis.

So we are looking to appoint versatile, resilient and committed Teaching  Assistants, who can adapt their practice where ever necessary to support across all key stages and in a range of environments. You will contribute to the effective implementation of individual programmes by supporting the teaching and learning experiences, which enhance the learning and development of young people. You will assist senior staff by contributing to the development of care and learning plans and contribute to the preparation of reports and update daily records and logs. You will maintain a professional relationship while developing a good rapport with young people.

We are looking for committed and enthusiastic people to join our friendly team, working with a unique group of young people.

You will need a full UK License held for at least 3 years with a maximum of 6 Driving License points.
