About the school

Sedgefield Community College

Would you like to progress your career in a school judged by OFSTED as ‘outstanding’ and named as the North East State Secondary School of the Decade by the Sunday Times, a school where both student achievement and attitudes to learning are amongst the best in the entire North East and Cumbria region? Would you like to develop your practice in a fantastic, recently built school, with its own dedicated Teaching and Learning centre for the sole purpose of promoting excellence in teaching? Would you also like to work in a school that has been designated as one of the twenty-two lead schools in the country in the DfE Behaviour Hubs programme? If the answer to each of these questions is ‘yes’ then Sedgefield Community College could be right for you.

The role of Enhanced Teaching Assistant involves providing effective support to identified individuals and groups of SEN students under the guidance of our SEND Coordinator. This includes working alongside teachers and other professionals helping ensure work programmes are accessible to individuals and that tasks are being completed as intended. In addition, the role requires post holders to take a key role in the delivery of literacy and numeracy developments programmes.

This post may be particularly attractive to those who would like to make a career in teaching and would like to first gain experience in a highly supportive school setting.
