ACE Schools Plymouth AP Academy (part of ACE Schools Trust) was formally set up on 1st June 2016 with the aim of building on the solid foundation established by the previous PRU. ACE Schools Plymouth operates from at least twelve different locations within Devon and Cornwall which provides education and support services throughout the community to support pupils to access education in schools, community centre’s, medical facilities or their own homes.   

Our pupils have failed to thrive in mainstream secondary and special schools or are returning from out of County placements.   Every child has a high level of support often including one to one support and bespoke timetables following thematic learning experiences. A wide range of personalised learning in and out of the classroom is designed to engage the student, build resilience and provide the foundation for rapid academic progress. We work very closely with parents and carers and many other support agencies to ensure that the child’s education is paramount.

We are looking for Teaching Assistants to support our Exeter and Bicton bases. The successful candidates should have experience of working with young people who have complex needs as well as their own resilience to support our young people on a daily basis. They will be professional in their approach and organised in their working.

If you have an understanding and capacity to manage young people with learning and/or behavioural difficulties and you have a desire to help make a difference to young people’s lives then we would like to hear from you.

ACE Schools Plymouth is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and
Barring Service (DBS) check and will be undertaken before a confirmed offer of employment is made to successful applicants.
