A school in the heart of Burnley, not far from the main train station and the M65, have approached Teaching Personnel in order to source a Teaching Assistant to work in the KS1 department. The school is larger than average and does have a ‘challenging’ catchment area.

The role will start in mid to late June and will continue, full time, for the rest of the academic year & is scheduled until at lest March 2018. The Deputy Head teacher, who deals with the recruitment in school, has noted that they will be looking for a Level 2 teaching assistant who can work effectively using their own initiative and improve standards under the leadership of the class teacher.

This will be a rewarding opportunity especially as the school are looking to gain ‘Outstanding’ status following a previous inspection last year which graded the school Good with Outstanding.
