Are you a graduate who wants to become a teacher and needs classroom experience before applying on a PGCE course?

Or, perhaps you have an education or psychology related degree with an interest in supporting children of varying abilities?

Can you commit to a full-time Teaching Assistant position this April until the end of the academic year?

Academics are working with a range of schools across Canterbury to take on a number of enthusiastic graduates into their Teaching Assistant positions - the schools embrace the idea of taking on keen individuals, enthusiastic about working with young people and venturing forth into teaching.

Successful candidates will start ASAP and work through to the end of the school year, with the potential of this being extended and becoming a permanent member of staff.

You will be supporting pupils in the classroom, guiding and helping them to make good progress in key areas of EYFS, KS1 or 2 curriculum. Being adaptable and willing to take on all challenges is essential, as you will be supporting students in small groups, or on a one to one level.

As a Teaching Assistant your responsibilities will be:

  • To provide continued support for the teacher within a chosen classroom
