Psychology & Sports Graduates -Sunderland -£350-400 per week

Many of the positions turn into permanent jobs. 

We are seeking Teaching Assistants, Tutors and Support Workers for Pupil Referral Units, SEMH Schools and mainstream SEND units across Sunderland and South Tyneside for long term and short-term roles that in many cases lead to a permanent job. This acts as a great platform if you are looking for a career in education, especially if you are intending to go on and complete your teacher training or work with young people in a wider context. Many of these positions do turn into permanent work and I have had many graduates who have started work with me and have gone on to get their dream job working with young people or in a wider field of Clinical Psychology or as a PE teacher/Instructor
