We currently have a high demand from schools for teaching assistant staff in mainstream secondary schools.

We welcome people who have both professional or personal experience supporting children who are at key stage 3 and 4. We also welcome people who have been youth workers, student mentors. Protocol also recruits third year students and recent graduates from all areas who are interested in entering education but do not have the experience.
