Graduate Teaching Assistant

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

Teaching Personnel are currently working in partnership with a mixed comprehensive secondary school in the central Salford area. Due to an increase in student intake this academic year, the school wish to appoint a team of Graduate teaching assistants to support pupils across the curriculum, cover lessons in the absence of the class teacher and work closely with class teachers.

It is essential that the successful Graduate teaching assistants have previous experience working with young people aged 11-16 to be considered for the above positions.

  • Full-time and part-time Graduate teaching assistant opportunities available.
  • Supporting pupils across the curriculum & covering lessons in the absence of the class teacher within your subject specialism.
  • Gain invaluable experience prior to completing a PGCE/teacher training course.
  • Competitive daily pay rates, in line with previous experience.
  • Opportunity to partake in CPD and additional training courses delivered through CPD partners.

The school has recently been refurbished, resulting in large areas designated to learning outside of the classroom for pupils that find it difficult to attend particular lessons. The role of the successful Graduate teaching assistant will be to work with identified pupils in learning areas, supporting their learning and reporting progress back to the class teacher. As there are a significant number of pupils at school with English as an Additional Language (EAL), it would be beneficial for the successful Graduates to have previous experience working with this requirement or to speak an additional language.

Another aspect of this position involves covering lessons across the curriculum in the absence of the class teacher with pre-set work. This opportunity will enable successful Graduates to build upon classroom presence, behaviour management strategies and confidence leading a large group of students.

Our client secondary school is situated near to central Salford and can be accessed via the A580 (East Lancashire Road) or the M602. Situated near to Leigh, Bolton and central Manchester the school is easily accessible from local public transportation links.

The school wish to meet interested Graduate teaching assistants at the earliest convenience, with the view of appointing successful teaching assistants immediately. The successful Graduate teaching assistants will initially join the school on a temporary basis for the remainder of the academic year, with the opportunity of securing a fixed term post from September 2019.
