We have partnered with a wonderful Primary school in Central London who are looking for a creative and determined trainee teacher to hit the ground running in a High-Level Teaching Assistant position with them, ideally from September 2022, but they would also consider earlier starts.

This is a good school, where all pupils expect to do well, and parents offer staunch support in encouraging hard work and good behaviour.
