Educational support assistant

As an educational support assistant you would usually support students one-to-one in a classroom or lecture. You might take notes for a deaf student or support students with learning difficulties in a mainstream school. You’ll need patience, sensitivity and a good all-round understanding of the subjects you’re supporting.
