Year 1 - Full Time
ITN Mark Education are looking for a dedicated Teaching Assistant who will be working mainly in Year 1 but possibly part time in Reception too. This is a long-term cover and it is for an immediate start at a mainstream primary school based in Oldbury.
The role would be to work with small groups and individual children who have fallen behind during the lockdown. The main areas that would be needed to work on are
2) Early reading
3) Basic writing skills
Many of the children would also have poor speech in the sense they struggle to express themselves and speak in structured sentences.
Because of this, the TA would need to have a good knowledge of the EYFS curriculum and the Year 1 curriculum. You will need to have the capability to think on your feet and the drive to move the children on as rapidly as possible. It is likely you will work outside the classroom a lot of the time so being able to work independently and organise yourselves would be key.
If this role is for you then please contact Neyna Nar immediately on 0121 616 1666 for more details.
