New to working in schools

The growth in demand for classroom support workers, teaching assistants and trainee teachers who are able to support pupil learning means there are increasing opportunities for people from outside education to develop a career in schools. We help you use the skills, qualifications and experience you have gained outside education to develop new career opportunities in schools.

All you need are good reading, writing and numeracy skills and the ability to build positive relationships with children. We help you develop your classroom skills and experience through a combination of work placements and free training to help you access new job opportunities in the education sector.
