We are looking to recruit Sports Science students or graduates to join our Team of Supply Teaching Assistants in St Albans and the wider Hertfordshire area. We are working closely with many schools in St Albans, Watford and Hatfield and they are seeking teaching assistants who are Sports graduates or students with experience of working with young people as a Sports Coach OR in another capacity related to young people.

This type of work will be a great opportunity for Sports graduates or Sports Coaches to use their academic knowledge on motivation and experience of working with young people in Education settings. You will have the opportunity to work on a 1:1 or group setting with young people with Special Educational needs and support their learning and emotional well-being. This can be an excellent route into a PE School Direct placement or sports coaching work in schools.

The work will involve 1:1 intervention sessions as well as supporting pupils in class as a Teaching Assistant and sometimes as a Sports Coach. However, the role of a teaching assistant will not always or at all involve using sports or sports activities. The ability to use the skills of a Sports Coach i.e train, teach, coach and mentor are highly desirable by the schools. Schools expect that candidates will have good quality literacy skills and appropriate educational qualifications to be able to meet these high standards.

Must have:

-Sports Coach training or Degree in relation to Sports, Coaching, Sports Psychology.
-Be willing to perform duties that are not related to Sports only.

Highly Desirable:

-Understanding and experience of supporting/teaching young people with Mental Health issues.
-Teaching Sports at after-school clubs

Placements in schools vary from daily supply, short and long-term cover and permanent positions according to your requirements and availability. Pay will depend on experience and the responsibilities of the role and is never less than £60 per day.
Benefits:

-Working within school hours: 0830-1530 (Or half days are possible).

-CPD opportunities: We run weekly free CPD sessions on all aspects of Teaching, SEND and Supporting young people. We support you to develop your career with relevant and current seminar and webinars. This is particularly beneficial if you are new or returning to Education/Special Educational Needs. This can also benefit your studies by gaining additional knowledge in other aspects of Special Needs and Education.
-Flexible work. (We can offer you work around your other commitments, such child care, study, 2nd Job, hobbies, holidays).
