Teaching Assistant – Independent Prep School
Start Date: September 2022
Timetable: Full Time
Year Group: Preparatory / Primary
Our client, one of London’s premium independent prep schools, is looking for a suitably qualified and experienced Teaching Assistant to join their thriving school.
Our client is an established prep school with an excellent reputation across London and the UK. The school’s success is thanks to its excellent teaching, broad curriculum and high pupil aspirations. The school is medium sized and feeds to some of the best selective senior schools in the UK. The ability of the pupils is mixed on entry but achievement is high throughout the school and pupils well exceed the national average.
There is currently a Teaching Assistant vacancy in the School Support Team. A Teaching Assistant is required from September 2022 if possible to support the children in the school, ensuring that the high standards of provision and pastoral care are maintained. This post will require a full-time commitment and could suit an experienced Teaching Assistant or someone looking for their first position in a school. Similarly, due to the competitive salary packages on offer the role could suit a recently qualified Teacher looking for a role to support a transition to teaching in private schools. The incoming TA will need to be flexible as they will be working throughout the school with a number of different Teaching staff and Year Groups. You will report to the Deputy Headteacher and will have excellent communication skills, being able to develop lasting positive relationships with staff, pupils and parents alike.
A suitable candidate profile will be someone who can demonstrate a passion for education, likely evidenced by strong personal academic achievement themselves and some experience working with learners in an education or pastoral capacity.
The Teaching Assistant salary will be determined on the school’s own generous scale and will be discussed at interview.
If you have the required skills to be considered for the post we welcome an application from you. For further detail contact Phil at Connaught Education.
