Job Description

As Educate look back at what has been a fantastic autumn term, we want to thank all our staff and local schools for their hard work, resilience, and dedication in supporting pupils in these trying times.

Looking forward to January, we aim to continue to do what we do best: support local schools with our experienced and fully trained staff who are treated fairly and ethically and given opportunities to progress and learn on the job.

We are currently working closely with local primary schools in the Mold, Buckley and Leeswood area, who are looking for enthusiastic and hard-working Teaching Assistants and Higher Level Teaching Assistants to join their team. Training is available for the right candidate who lacks experience but can demonstrate the enthusiasm and passion required for the role.

The role will be varied and rewarding, the schools place emphasis on developing strong positive working relationships, helping pupils to flourish, improving their self-esteem and gaining confidence both inside and outside the classroom. The key responsibilities will be aiding the class teacher, supporting pupils with day-to-day work, helping set out activities, and ensuring all pupils are supported emotionally and feel they are in a positive and safe environment.

No teaching assistant experience is required, if you have experience in sports coaching, tutoring, or working in Scouts or Brownies, this could be your perfect role! Proficient levels of literacy and numeracy are essential, as well as confidence in working with children from varying backgrounds and abilities.

The school will provide you with full support, whether you re an experienced Level 4 teaching assistant looking for a new challenge or somebody with strong child-based experience looking for a career change.
