EAL Teaching Assistant

Job description

Are you billingual or multi-lingual?

Have you got experience or training supporting children with EAL?

Do you have an EAL qualification?

We have the perfect role for you.

Schools have seen significant increases of students over recent years where English is not their first language and this has put additional pressure on resources.

Young children with EAL find it difficult to integrate with their peers and cannot easily access the school curriculum. The language barriers may extend to parents and carers making supporting the child even more challenging.

Teaching Personnel provide staff to work with EAL pupils, helping them develop and model the English language by providing support with reading, writing, listening and speaking. This can often help bridge the gap between school and parents making for a much better outcome all round.

Your work will depend on the age of the children and their individual needs, but may include:

  • preparing learning materials under the supervision of the teacher
  • working inside or outside the classroom with the individual or supporting them in a group
  • adapting support according to needs
  • creating a stimulating environment
  • giving information and help to teachers

Working hours are from 8:30am - 3:30pm but can vary depending on the school/pupils. Teaching Personnel can offer fantastic career development and competitive rates of pay.

If you are interested in finding out more please get in touch with Liberty on 0118 327 1556 or alternatively send over your CV.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We offer all our registered candidates FREE child protection and prevent duty training.
