Once students are integrated into lessons, this support will continue on a 1-2-1/small group basis in the classroom.

The candidate will also liaise with members of SLT to advise on appropriate timetable planning for students following the initial induction period.

Good literacy, numeracy and ICT skills are essential as well as effective communication skills.

The candidate will work hard to promote inclusion and ultimately raise the achievement of EAL pupils.
