Teaching Assistant Jobs in London

Are you looking for Teaching Assistant jobs in London?

World Class Teachers offer a range of day to day and long term teaching assistant jobs across London. Working as a teaching assistant in a class in either primary or secondary school is excellent, flexible work for all, as well as gives full time teachers-to-be a real sense of the experience.

If you have at least 1 years’ experience in a classroom, hold a degree and either live in London or are relocating from overseas, register with us today.

Working as a teaching assistant in the UK allows you to be involved in multiple aspects of the classroom environment, from supporting children in their tasks to assisting teachers with setting up the classroom for lessons or planning activities. As a teacher’s main source of a support, the teaching assistant provides more than an extra set of eyes; he or she is able to ensure that all the pupils are learning whilst the class teacher is giving a lesson.

The role of a teaching assistant offers you the chance to take part in children’s education in a direct way, as well as further your career through further qualifications to progress to a higher level teaching assistant (HLTA) or even a full time teacher. Many teaching assistants use this role as the ideal place to begin their teaching careers.

It is common that you would also take part in the education of children with special education needs (SEN), particularly in secondary school, and offer support in a group or individually. You could also work with children whose first language is not English, or acquire a specialism at certain schools in literacy or mathematics to better assist the children.

At World Class Teachers, we require our teaching assistant candidates to possess the following:

  • A valid passport or visa which allows you to work in the UK
  • Be within easily commutable distance of our schools
  • Have good command of spoken and written English
  • Be able to supply two recent professional references relating to your work with children
  • Be available to commit to long term supply work

Specific requirements for our teaching assistant roles will vary by job and by school, so please don’t forget to read the description thoroughly before sending us your application.
