We are looking for a highly skilled and passionate Teaching Assistant (TA) to work in our outstanding school. We offer a range of opportunities for career progression, including for those applicants who would like to pursue a teaching career.

Our ideal candidates will be committed to enhancing children’s learning, be flexible, able to work independently and enjoy working as part of a pro-active and dedicated team.

We have introduced a new structure for our Teaching Assistant support that allows for progression and enhanced professional development for Teaching Assistants working within our school. Phase Teaching Assistants have the opportunity to progress to become Specialist TAs in Mentoring, Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) or EAL as such posts become available and are advertised internally in the first instance. Furthermore, we offer progression to the role for Lead TA for Learning or Lead TA for SEMH which also may be appointed from internal recruitment. All posts are subject to a formal selection process.

This exciting structure allows for opportunities for TAs to progress within their career, to have their invaluable contribution to pupil learning and well being recognised and to engage in enhanced professional development.

As a Teaching School, we pride ourselves on nurturing a love of learning in everyone in our school community. We recognise that many TAs are gaining valuable experience before undertaking teacher training and we want to support them in their aspirations for a career in teaching.
We recruit and train candidates for the School Direct Teacher training programme (Alliance route) in partnership with the University of Roehampton. Any TAs who are interested in training under School Direct and meet the admissions criteria, would be supported in applying for this ITT route (Initial Teacher Training.)
