Teaching Assistants, HLTA’s required - Telford Area

Posted 11 months ago

Chalkboard Background

Tara Professional Recruitment are looking for Teaching Assistants, HLTA’s and TA’s in the Telford area for long term cover starting January until the summer.

At TARA Professional Recruitment, we pride ourselves in providing an unparalleled level of service to both schools and education staff alike.

Mission Statement

“To play our part in delivering the best of today’s and tomorrow’s education.

TARA seeks to ensure that students under instruction from a TARA member of Staff will receive the best possible level of education and care at all times, motivating and inspiring them towards a brighter future.”

Teaching assistants support teachers and help children with their educational and social development, both in and out of the classroom

What’s involved?

The roles and responsibilities of teaching assistants are varied and differ between schools. Your job can include:

Knowledge of national curriculum EYFS, KS1, KS2
Getting the classroom ready for lessons
Listening to children read, reading to them or telling them stories
Helping children who need extra support to complete tasks
Helping teachers to plan learning activities and complete records
Supporting teachers in managing class behaviour
Supervising group activities
Looking after children who are upset or have had accidents
Clearing away materials and equipment after lessons
Helping with outings and sports events
Taking part in training
Carrying out administrative tasks
To support pupils with particular individual needs, some teaching assistants work one-to-one, while others work in small groups. Many schools employ teaching assistants with particular specialisms, including literacy, numeracy, special educational needs (SEN), music and creative arts. If you are bilingual, you might do more work with children whose first language is not English.

Experienced and specially-trained teaching assistants (HLTA’s) can be expected to supervise a class for a teacher who is off sick or undertaking training. While every class must be allocated a qualified teacher, higher level teaching assistants (HLTAs) would be expected occasionally to lead a lesson.

Skills and experience you’ll need

An ability to build good working relationships with both pupils and adults
Good organisational skills
Flexibility and creativity
Enjoy working with children
Good literacy and numeracy skills
Ability to manage groups of pupils and deal with challenging behaviour
Patience and a sense of humour
