Career Teachers and looking for individuals who are interested in working in schools as a Teaching Assistant or a Cover Supervisor. Ideally you will be interested in working primarily in secondary and SEND settings. Positions start immediately, and we have lots of ongoing demand with local schools.

It is essential that you are flexible and that the ad-hoc nature of agency work suits you. You must be adaptable to different environments as this position with us would demand that you work across several different settings in a given week. Having said that, we do also recruit for staff to undertake longer term roles in the same school, but until one materialises, we would expect you to immerse yourself into working in a variety of different settings where we need to deploy staff due to increasing demands.

This is the ideal opportunity if you are looking for a post that will challenge you to utilise your knowledge, communication skills and creativity to develop varied approaches that help pupils understand the information presented.

As a successful applicant you will have:

  • Experience in supporting pupils in a classroom environment, including those with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Additional Learning Needs (ALN).
  • A good understanding of the national Key Stage Curriculum.
  • Sound understanding of child development and learning.
  • The ability to demonstrate active listening skills and strong verbal communication skills.
  • A dedication to establishing positive relationships with pupils and understanding their needs.
  • The ability to provide varying levels of individual attention, reassurance and support with learning tasks as appropriate to pupils' needs.
  • Willingness and ability to adapt to a wide range of duties in response to changing circumstances.
  • The ability to monitor a pupil's response to learning activities and modify or adapt the activities to achieve the intended learning outcomes.
  • The confidence to self-evaluate learning needs and actively seek new teaching methods.
  • The ability to provide constructive feedback to pupils in a way that reinforces self-esteem.
  • The ability to handle complex and sensitive issues with empathy and understanding.
  • Ability to work effectively and supportively as a member of the college team.
  • Demonstrable commitment to equal opportunities.
  • An interest in continuing your personal and professional development.

This is an excellent opportunity to make a real difference in children's education. Your commitment to developing pupil learning ability and knowledge accessibility will make you an ideal fit for this role. Apply today and stand out for all of the traits that make you a great fit.
