Psychology/Criminology Graduate Teaching Assistant

Rusholme, Greater Manchester
£88 - £105 per day
Primary School

Monarch Education are currently working in partnership with a number of Primary Schools in North Manchester.

In line with the needs of these schools, we are currently actively seeking to recruit Graduate Level Teaching / Support Assistants to work with pupils with behavioural difficulties or those who have become disengaged with the curriculum.

Several schools that we currently engage with are looking to work with Psychology and Criminology Graduates, to utilise their knowledge and skills to help minimise disruption and bring pupils back on track. The right candidates would be working in the classroom, supporting pupils who display low-level behavioural difficulties or who have become distracted from their learning. You would be working alongside these pupils as a strong role model, working to understand the pupil’s background and needs to help bring them back on track and minimise disruption in the classroom. These pupils are often performing just slightly below national expected standards, and require focused attention and additional support to bridge this attainment gap in the core subjects (Reading, Spelling & Grammar, Maths, and Phonics).

This is wonderful opportunity for graduates of this calibre to embark on their career in Education. You would be classroom based, but there would also be opportunity to further utilise your skills to lead after-school clubs / child psychology sessions. These are ideal roles for candidates who are looking to start a PGCE and wish to continue gaining experience in this sector.

These roles would be longer term positions, with the potential for permanent or fixed term contracts for candidates who really impress!

Working for Monarch you will:

  • Work with your designated consultant who will listen to your career goals and work alongside you to help you achieve them!
  • Work with consultants who have a lot of experience of being a teacher themselves
  • Have access to CPD opportunities
  • Be fully support throughout the duration of your placement

if you would like to speak further about these opportunities please apply or email your cv to

We are committed to providing equal opportunities for all candidates as well as adhering to strict Safeguarding procedures. Your application will be subject to 2 references and an enhanced DBS check.
