If you answered ‘YES’ to this question, you may be the person to join our team at Ravenshall School.


Educational Teaching Assistants – Two Posts

Post 1 will suit a Male Applicant

Post 2 will suit either a Male or a Female Applicant


We are looking to appoint two highly motivated, enthusiastic and highly skilled ETAs who are committed and hard working. The work in a teaching and learning setting will be with students of both gender.  Due to the specific and individual needs of some of our male students who require higher levels of intimate care, Post 1 would suit a male applicant.


Ravenshall School is a larger than average special school catering for the complex needs of pupils age 5 to 19.  Our students have learning difficulties; many having communication, sensory, mobility and medical needs.


It is essential that the successful applicants should have experience of dealing with children and young people, preferably within a School environment.  Well developed skills in behaviour and communication strategies would be an advantage, but not a necessity, as many of our students experience social, emotional and mental health challenges.  Full training will be provided for the successful candidate.  This will be a mix of “In-House” and externally sourced training. 


Ravenshall School first received the Gold Award from Investors In People March 2011 and this was maintained at reviews in May 2014 and more recently in July 2017.  We are committed to developing a strongly performing team.  Continued professional development for all staff plays a major part in our success.


The successful candidate will enjoy being part of a professional and energetic team, be keen to provide varied social learning experiences forming strong relationships with children and young people.


The hours of work will be 8.30am – 3.15pm


Visits to the school are strongly recommended for all applicants, to book an appointment please contact the school on 01924 456811
