Primary Support and Teaching & Learning Assistants

Providing essential support where it really matters

Primary Support Roles

From supporting the teacher during lessons to delivering targeted interventions and learning support for specific pupils, the roles taken by Teaching and Learning Support Assistants have never been more diverse or more essential. Protocol Education will help you find the role and style of work that is right for you and give you the experience needed to develop a real career within education.

Daily Supply and Short-Term Work

Primary schools contact Protocol Education to help them find emergency or short term cover for Teaching & Learning Assistants all of the time. The schools need to minimise disruption to their pupil's learning so need people who can jump in and make a difference at short notice.

For you, daily supply work is a great option if you want flexibility or need to combine work with other responsibilities and interests. Typically we look for people who are available for at least 3 days a week, but you can manage your own availability and take the work that suits your lifestyle.

Long-Term Jobs

As the importance of teaching & learning assistants increases in schools so does the focus on finding the right people to fill these roles. Primary schools work closely with Protocol Education to find people who are a great fit with their school to take on longer-term and even permanent roles.
