We are currently recruiting a Foundation Phase Specialist to work in a thriving faith school in the east of Cardiff. Our primary client, located just of the A48 in Cardiff, is looking for a Level 2 Teaching Assistant to work independently and confidently in their Year 2 class, three days a week.
The successful candidates will need to know how to deal with difficult situations, remain calm under pressure and be able to build a good rapport with pupils and staff alike. You will need to have good communication skills both written and verbal, as you will be required to provide full support to the Teacher during feedback sessions and morning meetings, preparing resources and helping produce decorative displays. A knowledge of the literacy package Read, Write, Inc would be ideal, but not necessary as the school will provide a brief training session on delivering the course.
