One of my client primary schools, located in a delightful part of Solihull, has approached Edustaff in helping them recruit a Graduate Teaching Assistant. Ideally the graduate will have a degree in either psychology or English and previous experience developing young minds either academically or otherwise.

The school has an ethos of 'Every child matters' with the inspirational Headteacher championing this at every opportunity. The school has a lovely atmosphere which stems from their warm and caring teaching staff and from pupils who seem to genuinely enjoy their time at the school.

The school are looking to take on a Graduate Teaching Assistant to join them from this October on a long term, full time (during term time) basis. The position is most likely to be in their Year 3 or Year 4 class at the early stages of Key Stage 2.

As a Graduate Teaching Assistant you will be tasked with helping the resident class teacher across a range of subjects. You will have a well rounded education so you can provide help and support to the pupils regardless of the current topic. As mentioned above candidates with degrees in English or Mathematics will be given priority although a 1st class degree in psychology will also be well received.

Everyday as a Teaching Assistant is different, it is essential that candidates are very organised, patient, understanding and able to tailor their support to the needs of the individual. At times you will be working with the class a whole plus additional support in small groups.

Any experience of working with pupils with Special educational needs will be put to good practice by the school.

If you're a future teacher and would like experience of working in a fantastic primary school, then please send in a copy of your CV to Patrick at Edustaff today
