I am recruiting Teaching assistants to support teachers and help children with their educational and social development, both in and out of the classroom. As a Teaching Assistant you will support pupils with particular individual needs, some teaching assistants work one-to-one, while others work in small groups. Many schools employ teaching assistants with particular specialisms, including literacy, numeracy, special educational needs (SEN), music and creative arts. If you are bilingual, you might do more work with children whose first language is not English.
