Are you a qualified Teaching Assistant?
Want to work with challenging and complex children?
Aspire are looking for colleagues to join our Specialist Supply Agency!
Teaching Assistants provide essential support and extra eyes and ears for the class teacher, with duties ranging from class preparations to overseeing a child’s individual, personal and social development. TA’s enrich a child’s education in a role that is incredibly rewarding and in many ways TA’s are the backbone of support needed in the classroom.
We are looking for individuals who are passionate about making a difference in children’s lives whilst also bringing a positive impact into the classroom. The children we work with are identified as at risk of exclusion and/or have complex, challenging needs. Children have many barriers to learning and at times can find the environment overwhelming. Our children require nurturing, consistent and supportive adults to help them overcome these barriers and make progress within the educational setting.
