Vacancies at Woodside
We have an immediate vacancy for a teaching assistant and will have a vacancy for a teacher in September. Please see our adverts below.
We will have a full-time teaching vacancy in September and currently have a short term, part time vacancy for a teaching assistant to work in the summer term 2018. For this second post a degree is not expected but relevant experience is. Please see the advert in this section. Applications need to be made using the form downloadable from this page. This should be accompanied by a letter of application summarizing your relevant experience and stating your reasons for wanting this post. A curriculum vitae is not necessary but if you already have one and you would like to include it you can. You are welcome to visit the school before applying.
We are not recruiting any other staff at the moment but we could have vacancies on our training programme. Please see our training page for these opportunities. Please note: when we recruit new classroom assistants we now normally only recruit graduates who have the desire and required qualifications to eventually train and qualify as teachers.
We welcome volunteers but we obviously need to conduct thorough checks before this can happen. Volunteering to help in class can provide the essential experience you need if you are planning to work in education but would not necessarily be the route to a support staff post at Woodside. When recruiting teaching assistants we now have a policy of only employing graduates who intend to follow a career in teaching and may later wish to join our graduate training programme. Previous paid or voluntary experience working with children in a school environment is an essential criteria for these applicants.
We occasionally need people to able to cover the absence of cleaning, catering or lunchtime supervisory staff and this is work which could lead to a permanent post. If you could be suitable and available for such please contact the school office with your details.
