Step Teachers are currently looking to employ a teaching assistant who is able to provide general support in one of our lovely user Primary schools in the Tavistock area. This post is set to start ASAP and is set to continue up until Christmas. Ideally, the candidate will be able to commit full-time working hours, but for the right candidate, the school can be flexible and allow for 5 Mornings a week. We would particularly like to hear from Teaching Assistants who can offer a level 2 qualification or above, however, this is not essential. 

Rated 'Outstanding' by OFSTED, this is a fantastic opportunity to become a part of a close-knit team that places the children's education and best interests at the heart of their holistic values. It is also situated in the heart of the Tamar valley and has a strong, established reputation within the local community. 

To apply for this position, you must be able to demonstrate:

  • Referenced, recent experience working with children. 
  • The ability to support the learning of those who are gifted and talented, and those who demonstrate severe barriers to learning. 
  • A Level 2 of higher qualification in supporting teaching and learning (not essential)
  • A genuine love and passion for working with children. 
  • The ability to show flexibility and adaptability in your approach towards teaching and learning. 
If this sounds like the perfect role for you, then we would love to hear from you. 

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.
Get special perks for free while working PAYE with Step Teachers such as a qualified GP 24/7 with webcam consultations, examinations, and email prescriptions. In addition to a confidential helpline for stress-related issues.

Step Teachers are an agency listed as an approved supplier on the Crown Commercial Service.  This is a new framework for schools to use, ensuring they have access to reputable agencies that meet certain safeguarding and recruitment guidelines.  The DfE is heavily marketing this service across schools and we would strongly suggest making sure you are registered with a CCS-approved agency moving forwards.  Registering with Step Teachers ensures you are working for a trusted partner of the DfE.
