We are looking for an experienced Teaching Assistant or HLTA to work with a GOOD Primary School in Mitcham.


  • Start date: 6th January 2020
  • Ongoing on a contract basis until at least July 2020
  • Full time, 8am to 4pm with 1 hour lunch break
  • London Borough of Merton - Mitcham area

The role will see you covering classes in the absence of the Class Teacher. This will mainly be within KS1 & 2, but you will be required to be flexible and cover in EYFS on occasion. Whilst covering classes, you will always have the support of a TA.

This is a varied role where you will sometimes be spending a full day covering a class, and on other days you may be acting as a TA and supporting the Class Teacher. There may also be occasions where you are asked to work with a particular child on a 1:1 basis.

You will have prior experience of covering classes, and be confident in managing behaviour. Ideally, you will have previously worked across a range of year groups and be comfortable at all levels.

You will be an excellent all-rounder and be happy to be flexible and get involved with all aspects of school life.

In return, you will be fully supported and have access to training and development opportunities, to help you further your career. You will be working with a great team who work well together and have a 'can do' attitude.

It is not essential for you to hold a HLTA qualification, but you are required to have experience of covering classes.

Please apply with you updated CV.

At Career Teachers we are fully compliant with Agency Worker Regulations, ensuring you receive equal treatment for pay and conditions after a 12 week qualifying period. Please ask for further details.
