Rate of pay: £9.18 – £9.36 per hour (Grade B).

South Molton Community College has an excellent team of dedicated and talented staff. It has been graded good in all areas under the Ofsted framework and in April 2017 we moved into a new school building. The school is growing in popularity and this growth is likely to continue. We also believe passionately in providing a well-rounded education to our students both in and out of the classroom and are committed to supporting our staff.

Required for September, we have an exciting opportunity for additional Teaching Assistants to join our existing busy and successful team as soon as possible. You will work with pupils across the full age and ability range at the College, addressing a variety of learning and behavioural needs. The post will include general classroom support and support for SEND students. This may include one-to-one and small group work. Therefore experience in this area is desirable but not essential. You will also be expected to supervise the pupils for part of the lunch break. These posts are fixed-term initially and this will be reviewed.

You will be an enthusiatic and committed Teaching Assistant. Experience of working with children is desirable but not essential. Candidates with other appropriate backgrounds will be considered also. A willingness to be involved with and support extra curricular activities such as clubs and sports would be welcome.

Closing date is 9.30am on Monday 8th July 2019. Interview date is Thursday 11th July. For an informal discussion, please contact Mr Simon Walker, Business Manager, on 01769 572129 or e-mail:

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff to share this commitment. You will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS check.
