A faith school located in Burnley who work exclusively with Teaching Personnel have approached me in order to shortlist and appoint two Level 2 qualified Teaching Assistants who can effectively support the Reception class teacher in delivering the EYFS Framework. The Head Teacher is keen to appoint bright and enthusiastic practitioners who can support the EYFS Curriculum effectively and encourage personal and social development.

The Head Teacher has said if the candidates get on well there will be an opportunity for these positions to become permanent.
