My client, a well-respected school in the Pentrebach area of Merthyr Tydfil is currently recruiting for two Teaching Assistants for long term roles. One role will be full time based in the nursery class and the second role will be part time every Wednesday & Thursday working in the year 1 class. Both roles will involve working with the class teacher to provide an interactive and nurturing learning environment alongside providing academic and emotional support for the pupils. The successful candidates will be required to support the class teacher with the day to day running of the classroom and also have the ability to work unsupervised with small groups. My client is looking for candidates who are committed, career driven, flexible and versatile with the confidence to work to a plan but also with their own initiative.
To be considered for these positions you will need to have a background working with children or display transferable skills from previous roles, this will be required alongside the passion and confidence to positively impact children’s educational experience. Previous employment working with children with additional learning needs is advantageous but not essential. Also, any experience of working with behavioral and emotional difficulties would be looked upon favourably.
If you feel you have the skills and criteria for any of these roles please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
