Are you considering a career teaching? Is English a passion of yours that you would like to share? Would gaining some class-based experience in a busy, thriving secondary school help you decide if a career in teaching was the right choice for you?

Tradewind Recruitment are currently working with an OFSTED 'Outstanding' all through School in the London borough of Brent, who are seeking hardworking and ambitious English graduates, wanting to commence their careers in education this September. This is a full time, long term Teaching Assistant position of one academic year.

Since opening in 2008, the school has grown to 1400 students, and has established a national reputation for excellence in teaching and learning, developing an approach which focuses consistently on enabling young people to be effective learners. The students like and respect each other and their teachers and work together in a productive and trusting atmosphere to reach their full potential.

As a Teaching Assistant, you will be working with a range of students from Year 7 to Year 13, focusing on raising their attainment in English and literacy.

You will need to be flexible and able to adapt to any situation and communicate effectively with the class teacher and SEN departments to ensure that all needs of the students are met and exceeded, to give everyone an equal opportunity to reach their full potential.
