Permanent contract

The Isle of Wight Education Federation was established to harness the very best education practice within two large secondary schools and a large A Level sixth-form centre of almost 500 students, to create a culture of continual improvement with increasingly successful outcomes for young people across the Island.

The Federation comprises Carisbrooke College, Medina College and The Island VI Form and candidates should, therefore, be prepared to work across the three sites as necessary. Appropriate vehicle business insurance will therefore be required.

The Governing Board of the Isle of Wight Education Federation is now seeking to appoint Learning Support Assistants to support access to learning for the students and provide general support to the teacher in the management of students in the classroom.

We believe that this role offers the successful candidate the chance to make a significant difference and it will help us to continue on our upward trajectory.

The successful candidate will:

  • Be enthusiastic, professional and a strong team player
  • Be passionate about teaching and learning
  • Be able to work on their own initiative
  • Be committed to continued and sustained improvement for our students
  • Be positive, creative and determined
  • Hold good ICT skills

The Colleges are fast-paced, fun and caring environments in which to work and there are excellent opportunities for personal and professional growth and development. If you feel you have what it takes to be part of our dynamic team, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Completed applications should be submitted to HR@iwef.org.uk. Please note that we cannot accept applications which are not submitted on the official application forms and we do not accept CVs under any circumstances.

The Governing Board of the Isle of Wight Education Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment.

The Governing Board of the Isle of Wight Education Federation is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

Please note that the Governing Body of an Aided or a Foundation School is the employer
