Schools – Teaching Assistant & PE Teaching Assistant

Apprentice Teaching Assistants support children with their learning activities in the classroom and in physical education.

They work alongside teachers to ensure that pupils enjoy learning in a safe and engaging environment.

If you like working with children and want to play a part in their development and wellbeing, a career as a Teaching Assistant or PE Teaching Assistant could be for you. You will need the ability to work closely with parents and teachers and have a good grasp of literacy and numeracy as well as a creative mind for activities.

If being a PE Teaching Assistant interests you then you will need to have a keen interest in sport and have the ability to inspire pupils to take part in physical activity.

**Please note** School Apprenticeship vacancies are extremely popular and as such are highly competitive. Having some form of experience working or volunteering with young people can be highly advantageous although not essential.
