If you enjoy playing a part in children's education and wellbeing, you should consider looking for a job as a teaching assistant. Indeed, the role of a teaching assistant is to help children with their learning activities in and outside the classroom. The position of a teaching assistant includes working individually or in small groups with children with particular needs. To succeed in teaching jobs, you must have an ability to work closely with children, their parents and teachers.
Salaries for teaching assistants vary around £13.000 and £18.000 a year. If you are looking for a full time position, a typical day will start around 8.30am and finish around 4pm accounting to 40 hours a week. You can be asked to attend extra school activities such as school outings, meetings and training.
In terms of employment each school sets its own entry requirements. The type of qualifications and experience required are not the same from a school to another. However, previous nursery work and/or childcare can help you find a job in the teaching industry. If you don't have significant experience, it's important that you show employers you have the right personality to work with children. In most cases, employers will take you on and train you on the job.
So if you are creative, like team work and have good reading, writing and numeracy skills, apply for a teaching assistant position.
