Are you an agent of change? Do you have a growth mind-set; believing anything is possible if you put your mind to it? Do you want to help young people with social and emotional difficulties re-engage with learning to enhance their life choices? Can you help them to believe in themselves, engage with their learning, and achieve highly? If the answer is yes, we want you to work with us to help transform the lives of our young people and their families.

You will be working with KS3 and KS4 students who are at risk of exclusion or who are highly disaffected with education, to help them successfully re-integrate back into mainstream school or a post 16 destination.

At The Albany we take learning beyond the classroom, using the local area as our teaching resource so you need to have access to your own transport.

We can offer creative and personalised CPD, a great wellbeing package and a fantastic team to work in, as well as opportunities to develop yourself and your career further.

As a LSA you will play a significant part in helping co-create sustainable change in our students, building their ‘passport to their future’. You will be confident working with students within a classroom environment supporting colleagues, and also able to work on your own with small groups / individuals on learning activities and enrichment programmes, outside the classroom, including literacy and numeracy catch-up.

Whilst we may not be able to host school tours for interested applicants before the closing date, please do contact Sharon Ungless, HR Officer at sharonungless@thealbany.school with any questions or to arrange a time to discuss the post further.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. DBS checks or police vetting will be required for relevant posts.
