We are currently working with a fantastic and supportive team working at an Alternative Provision in Lewisham who are looking for a bright, confident, engaging, and proactive TA to join their team on a long-term basis.
At the AP, majority of the students are female, and they are in KS3 – KS4. The classes are smaller so will usually have around 5-8 students per class and you will have support from other TA’s as well as the Class Teacher in the classroom. They are a very friendly, approachable, and supportive school who enjoy supporting children and young people into adult life.

No day will be the same and this is a very rewarding role where you will be a role model to the students.
