Further Information

First Class Supply are working with special schools in the Gateshead area. We are working to secure a pool of experienced teaching assistants to work with SEND pupils, specifically those with Social and Emotional Behavioural Difficulties. You will need the confidence to work with Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils who are likely to have behavioural difficulties and barriers to learning. Whilst experience of working in a similar environment isn’t essential, you must have the ability to build a rapport quickly with pupils, and to understand their differing needs and abilities. You will be required to teach a variety of subjects to pupils on a 1-1 or small group basis.

Roles are available for a range of full and part time hours, meaning we are able to provide you with a position that suits your lifestyle. For those interested in longer term positions, we will be happy to discuss potential roles. This is also an excellent opportunity if you are seeking permanent employment as introductions to new settings often leads to future positions.

To apply for a position you must:

  • be able to demonstrate a positive impact on pupil development
  • be able to demonstrate resilience
  • be understanding of the individual needs of pupils which may have contributed to them moving to the provision
  • a valid Team Teach certificate
  • hold a Level 3 teaching assistant qualification
  • have 6 months experience working within the UK National Curriculum.
