Teaching Assistant

Teaching assistants work closely with teachers and help with activities in schools. As a teaching assistant you might find that you get more one- to-one time with children than the teacher, so this could be a great pick if you are passionate about making a difference to children who are struggling or need encouragement.

I am delighted with my progress from year one. I have learnt some excellent teaching strategies and have improved in confidence, and in my teaching and planning abilities.
