The school would like to meet graduate teaching assistants that are happy to work on a long-term basis in order for the pupils to form strong working relationships and trust with the recruited Teaching Assistants.

Full support will be given from the school’s SEN department and dedicated SENCo who are there to provide training and guidance in the best way to be effective. Most importantly they are there to instil a real love of working with and developing pupils who require additional support.

The day’s activities will largely be governed by the needs of the individual pupils you work with but will include small group sessions, one-to-ones as well as whole class support.

If you’re a psychology graduate looking to gain experience en-route to becoming an Educational Psychologist this could be the perfect school for you.
