Depressed about the lack of supply this term, I am browsing non-teaching jobs and found this one: Summary: HLTA for new Behavioural/Learning Support Centre Based at Skerton Community Centre, Slyne Road, Lancaster An enthusiastic, hard working Higher Level Teaching Assistant is required to work in an offsite centre. The successful candidate will work with a small group of disaffected and vulnerable KS3 and KS4 pupils whose needs cannot currently be met in a mainstream school. They will deliver a curriculum which closely mirrors the mainstream curriculum at Skerton Community High School and will be supported in this by teachers at Skerton. They will be required to establish and maintain a learning environment with clear expectations and boundaries. As part of a professional team the successful candidate will be committed to the concept of high expectations and achievement for all. http://www3.lancashire.gov.uk/corporate/vacancies/vacancyDetails.asp?id=41399 Why on earth (and I want to say something stronger there) is this not a teaching job??
