Student Support Assistant

  • Period: Part-Time
  • Contract: Contract
  • Closing date for applications: 22 December 2016

The British International School (BIS) Abu Dhabi is a premium quality school, offering an English National curriculum to Abu Dhabi’s diverse and rapidly growing community.  It is part of the Nord Anglia Education family of worldwide schools.

The School is seeking to create a pool of applicants interested in future Student Support Assistant (SSA) vacancies.

The SSA role consists of assisting in the support and inclusion of pupils with additional educational needs (for example, those with English language difficulties, social and emotional difficulties or other academic educational needs).

The aim of an SSA is to help the pupil to learn as effectively as possible both in group situations and individually, inside and outside of the classroom. This is achieved by, in conjunction with the head of Inclusion, developing and carrying out a suitable programme of support both within the classroom and in a withdrawal situation.

Successful candidates will be fluent English language speakers.  Fluency in an additional language would be an advantage.  Experience of working in a school environment would be desirable, as would degree-level education.

Application: Expressions of interest should be emailed to careers@bisad.ae, with the subject line ‘Student Support Assistant’ accompanied by a CV and covering letter.
