Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA)

Salary Range: Grade E 15-20 (FTE £27,803-£30,296) per annum pro rata

Contract: Permanent, Term-time (39 weeks year), Hours: 30 hours per week

We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and experienced HLTA to join our team of exceptional practitioners in our PPA cover team. The HLTA role will primarily be to plan, deliver and assess a specialist subject during teaching PPA cover sessions across the school.

Please state clearly the subject specialism you can offer in your application.
