Job Description

New Directions Education are currently recruiting a bank of Level 1 Teaching Assistants to work in schools across the Wrexham borough.

You are able to state the areas of Wrexham that you can travel to, your preferred hours of work and age groups that you would feel more comfortable with.

Experience working as a Level 1 Teaching Assistant is desirable, but not essential. We have the opportunity to register Trainee Teaching Assistants, but ask that you have experience working with children, coaching or within the care sector. We can offer support and training.

We’ll also consider experienced learning support assistants (LSAs) who have previously held a job in a primary school or assisted a pupil in the role in a secondary school but do not hold any of the above qualifications.

As a teaching assistant you’ll be expected to:

  • Assist in the implementation of Individual Education Programmes (IEP) for students and help monitor their progress
  • Provide support for individual students inside and outside the classroom to enable them to fully participate in activities
  • Assist class teachers with maintaining student records
