Apprentice Teaching Assistant x 2

Hours 37 hours a week including day release for college

We require 2 ambitious Apprentice Teaching Assistants to support children’s learning in our brand new, purpose-built school which opened in September 2022.

The successful candidate will as part of their training develop:

  • A positive outlook, a sense of humour and an ability to work with other professionals is essential.
  • Be able to inspire and challenge our highly motivated and enthusiastic children.
    • Become confident and enthusiastic to lead 1:1 and group activities including SEN interventions.
    • Learn how to enhance children’s language development.
    • Have high expectations of themselves and the children they work with.
    • Have the ability to build positive relationships with children to enhance their emotional wellbeing and learning outcomes.
    • Develop the skills, strategies, and confidence to facilitate learning through play and exploration, and ‘plan in the moment’ to progress learning.
    • Learn how to plan and adapt learning experiences to meet individual needs.
    • Develop the environment both indoors and outdoors to enable the children to achieve to their fullest potential.
    • Demonstrate a high level of inclusivity within working practice and actively seek to remove barriers to learning.
    • Demonstrate a positive attitude with high levels of resilience.


Apprentice teaching assistants have the opportunity to start working in a classroom straight away. They work with the lead classroom teacher to support students, make sure lessons run smoothly and lead smaller group activities. Teaching assistants work very closely with the children and often support the same ones long term. They can have a life changing impact on the people they work with.


You will need a good general standard of education including GCSE English and Maths to Grade C/4. Experience of working in a school setting is highly desired.

Apprenticeship duration: approx. 18 months

Salary expectations: starting salary can be between £15k and 19k

After completion, apprentices may progress to higher level teaching assistant roles and specialist teaching assistant roles.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children; therefore, the post is subject to medical clearance and an enhanced DBS.

Visits to the school are encouraged. Please call the school office on 01889 221555 to arrange.
