You will have a patient and calm personality but will be able to be firm when necessary. You will build strong rapport with those you're working with and encourage them to explain why they're angry or upset. The school would like the child to thrive in the classroom as well as in their community, therefore you have to be able to motivate and encourage the child to get involved in school opportunities, pursuing its interests and developing their skills.


In return we offer you:
• Competitive rates of (weekly) pay
• Professional support from our team of experienced consultants
• Social nights out with the rest of Protocol staff
• A wide variety of positions, both day to day and long-term
• £250 Referral Bonus for each teacher you refer to us.*

As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00.
