If you enjoy working with children and would like to play a part in their education and wellbeing, a job as a teaching assistant could be ideal for you.

Teaching assistants work alongside school teachers, helping pupils to get the most out of their learning.

They support individuals or groups of pupils, and they assist the teacher in the classroom.

Some Teacher Assistants specialise in literacy, numeracy, special educational needs, English as an additional language or the creative arts. Once you've started work as a teaching assistant, there are good opportunities to develop your career by completing further qualifications.


We also offer Intermediate and Advanced Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Apprenticeships.
