Further information

Following our successful Ofsted reports we continue to receive unprecedented demand for pupil places within the Trust and therefore this means we need new team members who are enthusiastic and passionate about SEND and want to come and work in our exciting and growing Academies.

Ascent Academies Trust was founded by four special secondary schools with the aim of developing a vision and strategic plan for special educational needs in Sunderland, Easington and Stockton. By collaboratively working together they are able to increase the opportunities they can offer their own students and staff and each academy brings to Ascent its own wealth of knowledge and expertise within their area.

We are seeking to appoint a number of Supply Teaching Assistants who will be responsible for supporting individuals and small groups, in addition to working with whole class groups.

Portland Academy is a successful secondary special academy for students aged 11-19. The population is predominantly students with severe or profound learning difficulties and those with associated autism. It is part of the Ascent Academies Trust, comprising four special academies across the region. As part of the staff team, you will play a key role in the achievement of small groups of students.

Further information about the Academy can be seen on their website.

Candidates should have a good understanding of students with severe and profound learning difficulties, complex medical needs, and challenging behaviours; be well organised and be able to work as part of a team. Candidates will possess GCSE A*-C or equivalent in Maths and English.
