Job description

  • Gain an all round experience before deciding exactly what your preferences are in terms of long term positions.
  • No pressure and constraints of working full time.
  • You still get to work within the education sector.
  • Paid on a weekly basis!
  • An abundance of supply work in a variety of schools
  • Supply teaching assistants never have to accept the work that they are offered!
