*Differentiating learning accordingly to scaffold and challenge allowing children as individual learners to reach their potential

*Effective communication with the TA with regards to consolidating the teacher input with small groups. Provide tasks/ activities, essential questions for the TA and work as a team to assess learning and relay feedback

*The ability to work well as a member of a team learning from other professionals in the field as well as sharing strategies, advice and resources from your own expert area

*A positive contribution to the extra-curricular activities or even better still, lead your own club as part of the wider school programme.
