Student Support Assistant

  • Period: Full-Time
  • Contract: Contract
  • Closing date for applications: 15 October 2020

The British International School Abu Dhabi is seeking to appoint a Student Support Assistant to join the Secondary Inclusion team. This is a learning support role within a well-established and supportive team in a highly successful and expanding school.

About the Role

The Student Support Assistant role consists of supporting the inclusion of pupils with additional educational needs.

A Student Support Assistant will normally work with an individual student, supporting them to overcome barriers to learning (for example, those with English language difficulties, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties or other academic educational needs).   

The aim of the Student Support Assistant is to help the pupil to learn as effectively as possible both in group and individual situations, inside and outside of the classroom. In conjunction with the Head of Inclusion, you will assist in the development and delivery of a suitable programme of support both within the classroom and on a one-to-one basis.

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.

About Our School

The British International School Abu Dhabi is a highly successful, growing school with a committed and inspirational team of teaching professionals at its heart.  Our close-knit, supportive team is honoured to be at the centre of our community, educating over 1800 young people aged 3-18, from more than 90 nationalities.  To learn more about our school, please visit http://www.nordangliaeducation.com/our-schools/abu-dhabi
