Teaching Assistants at The Harbour Medical School - Band 4 - employed on a casual basis

We are seeking to appoint an inspiring and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant, able to support students in class and/or on a 1:1 basis develop emotional literacy skills such as resilience and self-esteem.

The successful candidate will be kind and supportive to our children and preferably have previous experience in supporting students with social and emotional difficulties.

You will be joining a highly committed and supportive team, where the needs of the students are at the very heart of all we do. The appointment will be on a casual basis giving you flexibility around the number of hours you work each week and when you work so you are able to fit your working time around other commitments. There is also the opportunity to expand or reduce hours according to your home circumstances.
