HLTA, Haven, Tiverton

We are seeking to appoint a HLTA for our Nurture Unit, Haven. The core purpose of this role is to facilitate teaching and learning support in our Haven campus alongside a team of specialist teachers and TA’s. Haven is structured to deliver the curriculum through the nurture principles. This post also has a role in manging the wider team of Teaching Assistants to ensure their practice is the very best it can be in the classroom and the delivery of specialist practice. In addition, the successful postholder will provide specific therapeutic and academic support in line with students’ Education Health and Care Plan.

We have a strong team of specialist HLTAs and TAs from a diverse range of backgrounds who mainly assist in one subject area, based on their skills, experience and areas of interest or an interest in supporting a KS3/4 Nurture Group. SEMH/ASC experience could be an advantage, but our overriding priority is to find the right people to join our team and full training will be given. Experience of Thrive or ELSA would be advantageous or experience of specialist interventions such as occupational therapy (Sensory Circuits/Fun Fit) Speech and Language (Talkabout/Homunculi).

You will work across a team of Teachers and Student Support Assistants to equip students with life skills that will enable them to thrive as independent, skilled adults who can navigate the multiple demands of the wider world. We are looking for proactive, resilient practitioners with the ability and flexibility to act as a consistent adult in the absence of the specialist teacher.

We are developing an excellent reputation for providing student-centred learning and support with the highest level of challenge to ensure our students attain the highest standards of personal, social, emotional and academic development. If you want to join us to deliver bespoke, innovative education tailored to the needs of our unique students, then we would love to hear from you.
