To meet demand for primary schools across Nottingham, PK Education are recruiting for Level 3 qualified teaching assistants who have experience of working with pupils of all ages on either a 1:1 or small group basis.

Unlike other agencies, we work in partnership with you to find the roles which suit your circumstances and skills, so if it’s the flexibility of day to day supply, or the stability of a full-time position, we’re here to help!

The roles responsibilities will vary day-to-day and school-to-school but generally you can expect to:

  • Work with small groups or on a 1:1 basis to support learning in a range of key subject areas including English, Literacy, Maths, Phonics and Science.
  • Preparing resources and setting up activities for the day to follow the teachers plans.
  • Creating display work.
  • Keeping the classroom clean and organised.
  • Providing pastoral care and support so all pupils feel safe and included.
  • Guide childrens’ learning, explaining concepts which they might be struggling with.
  • Promote good standards for behaviour in the classroom.
  • Feedback progress of children to the class teacher.

 The ideal candidate should be:

  • Qualified with at least an NVQ Level 3 or equivalent teaching assistant qualification.
  • Have good literacy and numeracy skills.
  • Be passionate about working in education.
  • Understand the national curriculum.
  • Be able to use initiative to help support the teacher and pupils.
  • Have experience in a primary school setting

In return as a top teaching agency in Nottingham PK Education can offer:

 * Fair rates of pay between £55-65 per day 

* A personal consultant who will work tirelessly to find you the local Derby or Nottingham primary teaching jobs and teaching assistant jobs you want

* The flexibility to chose your working schedule and the areas and schools you want to work with
