Teaching Assistant

We are an Alternative Provision Academy supporting children with social, emotional, and mental health needs, who have been identified as being at risk of exclusion, harm or have already been excluded from mainstream education. Children are referred to use by partner local authorities and schools within the Northwest Region. 

At the Kassia Academy, we use trauma informed and therapeutic approaches to re-engage learners with their education. We are passionate about giving our young people the skills they need to make a valuable contribution to society and to fulfil their dreams. We recognise that education is not a ‘one size fits all’ model and we carefully tailor our provision to meet every individual’s needs. 

Professionalism and having the highest expectations is at the heart of everything that we do: developing a love of learning and improving our learner’s life chances as a result. 

We are seeking a skilled and highly motivated Teaching Assistant, with experience in SEN to join our high-quality school. Not only is this an exciting, challenging role, the successful candidate will be contributing to turning the lives of young, vulnerable people around. You will be a hardworking and enthusiastic professional, with experience in engaging the most disengaged young learners.

If you have a proven track record of delivering excellence and also have a history of dealing with complex needs and challenging behaviour, then this position may be for you. We pride ourselves on an ethos of inclusivity, and our core values of Resilience, Innovation and Compassion are at the heart of all of our schools.
