Governor Vacancy (voluntary)

The Tiffin Girls’ School is an Academy and the Members of the Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a Governor for a four-year term of office, who is in, or has held, a senior position in the private or public sector and has good knowledge and experience of HR management / employment law. They should be a confident leader and have a strong commitment to selective girls’ education and its role in enhancing social mobility and diversity. In common with many Governing Boards (GB) in schools and across the wider charity sector, The Tiffin Girls’ School’s GB currently lacks diversity. We recognise that a more diverse range of Governors can help demonstrate that the GB is fair and open in all its dealings, as well as increasing stakeholders’ confidence. It can also help strengthen the GB’s decision-making by considering issues from a wider range of perspectives. We would therefore particularly welcome candidates from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities. To apply, please complete and return the application form (governor) below, together with your CV, to clerk@tiffingirls.org         
Closing date: 10.00am Thursday 7 November
Interviews: morning, Wednesday 20 November

We are looking to appoint an experienced part-time Learning Support Assistant to provide support for a Key Stage 3 student with special needs. Working with classroom teachers and the SENCO, you will provide in and out of class support to the student who is learning in a highly academic environment.

A key part of the role is to enhance and develop the independence of the student. Experience of working with or an understanding of hearing impairment will be advantageous. In addition to supporting a student with a hearing impairment, the successful candidate may work with other students who have been identified by the SENCO as needing additional support e.g. students with dyslexia or with ASD. Experience in these areas would therefore also be advantageous. Strong communication skills are essential, and experience in working with young people in a school setting would be particularly desirable. Part of the role will be to provide administrative support to the SENCO and some administrative experience would therefore be useful.
