Do you have experience of supporting a child on a one to one basis?

A primary school in Thetford has an opportunity for a teaching assistant to join their team, working with a young student who requires extra support.  This will also be a mentoring role where you will provide guidance and be a supportive figure for the learner.  

The position is offered until the end of the summer term on a full-time basis.  The role will involve working as a Teaching Assistant on a 1-to-1 basis.

  • It is expected that the successful candidate will not only have relevant primary experience, but also a Teaching Assistant qualification​
  • The successful candidate will be able to differentiate to students of varying abilities effectively, making sure that all pupils feel valued and included
  • You will have experience working in a mainstream school as a Teaching Assistant.
  • The successful Teaching Assistant will be engaging, enthusiastic, and motivating to their pupils.

Candidates will be subject to a variety of checks including an enhanced DBS check, full references including your most recent employer and eligibility to work in the UK. Step Teachers are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. 

Unlike other agencies, Step Teachers are more than happy to process your pay via PAYE – you will not be forced to go with an Umbrella Company.
