EYFS Teaching Assistant – Rochdale

As a Teaching Assistant based within a primary school’s Early Years unit, your ability to aid the progress of young minds in their social, communication and language skills is invaluable.

Do you have a desire to make a truly rewarding impact and inspire a love of learning in children from the outset of their education?

As an Early Years Teaching Assistant working at a large primary school in Rochdale, we require you to provide support within the school’s EYFS unit, specifically within Reception, to support identified pupils starting in September. The focus will be on aiding the social development and language skills across the classroom. A degree of personal care will also be part of the role.

The school is seeking an EYFS TA on a full-time basis; working from 8.30am-3.30pm, Monday to Friday.

On offer to you

  • Access to our employee benefits scheme, Affinity Extra; offering a host of benefits and savings from an extremely wide range of retailers, utilities and services as well as days out and experiences
  • Training opportunities to keep your knowledge up-to-date and to help you advance in your career
  • A variety of payroll options to suit your individual circumstances
  • Extremely competitive rates of pay
  • Flexibility in your working schedule

What we are looking for

  • Knowledge and/or experience of working with or supporting any form of Special Educational Need; experience of autism would be beneficial
  • Experience of working with children is useful but not essential. Your attitude, desire to help children, knowledge and transferable skills are equally as important, sometimes more so.
  • You will help to keep children safe by supporting the safeguarding of children and encouraging positive behaviour through agreed behaviour management strategies
  • You will provide care and encouragement to pupils while supporting the teacher in the delivery and evaluation of learning activities
  • The ability to remove barriers to learning and provide mentoring support to children.

  • A qualified Teaching Assistant with knowledge of SEN or supporting challenging behaviour
  • Someone with a background in Residential Support, Social Work, Mental Health Support or with similar transferable skills
