Primary Teaching Assistant

Job description

Primary Teaching Assistant

-          Part-time and full-time roles available

-          Competitive rate of GBP10-GBP12.50 per hour

-          Experienced in a school setting required

The recent school closures have left students, on average, 3 months behind in their studies with over 44% of pupils requiring extra support in the coming academic year. Owing to such, the government have allocated additional funding to supporting these pupils and it is expected that a large proportion of this will be allocated to employ extra Teaching Assistants.

Teaching Personnel are therefore recruiting a bank of staff to supply to schools over the East Lancashire area. We are currently looking to place candidates in schools across Padiham, Burnley, Todmorden, Nelson, Bacup and Rawtenstall.

As a Teaching Assistant, you would work closely with the class teacher to assist in the preparation and delivery of lessons across a range of subjects such as maths, reading and writing. You would also be responsible for implementing the school’s behavioural policy. The successful candidate must have experience within a Primary School setting, preferably in the Key stage they wish to work. As part of the role, you may also be asked to work on a 1:1 or small group basis to provide additional support to children who may fall below target in terms of academic or social development.  

After such a long period away from the classroom, it can only be expected that some students will find it harder than others to return to school. The successful candidate should therefore be of a nurturing nature and prepared to assist children into their return to school life as much as possible.
