Responsibilities of a teaching assistant?

Working as a teaching assistant in a primary school, you will take up various responsibilities in and outside the classroom, helping the class teacher throughout the day.

Tasks might include listening to children read, telling the children stories and supervising group activities. Teaching assistants also carry out administrative tasks, help the teacher to maintain records and plan learning schemes so strong organisational skills are essential.

Please check out our current vacancies to see what primary school teaching assistant jobs we currently have available in London.

If you are interested in teaching assistant jobs in secondary schools, typically you would be working with special education needs (SEN) students at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Most secondary schools have a Learning Support Department within the school, where specialist teachers and a team of SEN teaching assistants work 1:1 and in small groups of SEN students to complement the work being done in the mainstream school. Often this involves booster sessions in literacy or numeracy, helping the SEN students to keep up to speed in class.

Please check out what SEN teaching assistant jobs we have available currently in your London borough.

SEN Teaching Assistant Jobs LondonCareer progression within a teaching assistant job

Once working as a teaching assistant, if you want to develop your career and have a more substantial role in the classroom, you can progress your career further by working towards becoming a Higher Level  Teaching assistant (HLTA).

If you want to become a teacher in the future, several teaching assistants go on to train as teachers via the schools direct programme or PGCE course, so becoming a teaching assistant is an excellent start to following this path.

Several of our client schools are constantly looking for bright and enthusiastic graduates for graduate teaching assistant jobs within primary schools and secondary schools for long term contracts with a view to moving candidates onto the Schools Direct programme to train to become a qualified teacher.

If you are looking for HLTA jobs or graduate teaching assistant jobs in London starting now or in the future then have a look at our current vacancies to see what long term and permanent roles we have available.
