Apprentice Teaching Assistant
£4.30 per hour
Required from 1st September 2021 until 31st March 2023

The Governors of Ox Close Primary School seek to appoint an apprentice who has the passion and commitment to working with children.

Training will be provided by Derwentside College and will fully prepare the successful candidates for a career supporting teaching and learning in a primary school. We are a good school with a proven track record in developing all staff.

The successful candidate will work in EYFS alongside experienced professionals with very high expectations. You will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to the role and should make a positive contribution to the progress of our pupils.

Durham County Council is an Equal Opportunities Employer. We want to develop a more diverse workforce and we positively welcome applications from all sections of the community. Applicants with disabilities will be invited for interview if the essential job criteria are met.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Any offer of employment will be subject to receipt of a satisfactory DBS Enhanced Disclosure.

Calculation of term time only plus two weeks’ pay

Term time only plus two additional weeks’ pay is calculated on the basis of the following:
• Number of ‘teaching’ weeks – 38 weeks; plus
• Public (bank) holidays – 1.6 weeks (8 days); plus
• Two additional weeks, inclusive of CPD – 2 weeks; plus
• Individual leave entitlement - 5.2 weeks (26 days) or 6.2 weeks (31 days)
Individual leave entitlement is calculated on the length of continuous service.
Employees with less than 5 years’ service will receive 26 days annual leave.
Employees with more than 5 years’ service will receive 31 days annual leave.
For example:

Calculation for employees with less than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 26 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 46.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Calculation for employees with more than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 31 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 47.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Where our roles are customer facing and you are required to speak to members of the public, the ability to converse at ease with customers and provide advice in accurate spoken English is essential for the post. As a disability confident employer, we are committed to employing disabled people and people with health conditions making reasonable adjustments to support disabled applicants when required.

Application forms can be downloaded from here and completed forms should be returned to the school via email.

The closing date for applications is Friday 23rd July at 12 noon.

Shortlisting will take place on Monday 26th July 2021.

Please note that if you have not been invited for an interview by 5pm on Tuesday 27th July 2021, you have not been shortlisted.
