We have an exciting opportunity for a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) to join our hardworking and motivated team at Brookfield Primary Academy.


The purpose of this role is to provide high quality learning opportunities and cover on behalf of the class teacher, during periods of planned and unplanned absence. You will collaborate with teachers and other staff to plan, deliver and provide feedback for classes, small groups and individual pupils throughout the school within a framework agreed with and under the guidance and supervision of qualified teachers. 


Applicants who meet HLTA standards or equivalent qualification or experience should refer to this job description and person specification


Ideally, we are looking to appoint one candidate for 30 hours per week, but we will consider applications from candidates who wish to work fewer hours (e.g. 2 or 3 days) and where we can appoint more than one person to cover the total hours. The hours of work are expected to be 08:30 - 15:30 with 1 hour unpaid break,  but we may be a little flexible for the right candidate. 


The successful candidate(s) will:


  • Be suitably qualified (please refer to the person specification documents for details of this);

  • Have relevant and recent experience leading whole classes under a framework of supervision;

  • Be motivated to provide the best learning experiences possible for our pupils;

  • Work collaboratively with colleagues and have a positive and solution-focused outlook;

  • Be flexible and willing to adapt to suit the school’s needs as they arise, sometimes on short notice 


Informal conversations are welcomed and visits to our academies are highly encouraged. Please contact the school directly to arrange this. 


Internal candidates should complete and send a statement of suitability, in line with the job description and person specification, to recruitment@leoacademytrust.co.uk.  


External applicants should complete an application form, detailing how you meet the qualities required in the person specification above, and giving examples of recent and relevant experience of a range of tasks identified in the job description. We regret that we are unable to accept CVs. 


LEO Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Please read about our commitment to safeguarding as well as other important information in our candidate guide
