What is a Manchester teaching assistant?

Teaching assistants (TAs) are invaluable assets to classrooms up and down the country who enable children to reach their full potential. In partnership with the main class teacher, teaching assistants in Manchester support, assess, and record children’s attainment and care for the children on a pastoral level.

People who become excellent teaching assistants have a mix of enthusiasm, confidence, and a willingness to lend a hand and help others.

They are also:

  • Adaptable and organised

  • Confident technology users
  • Great communicators
  • Self-confident self- improvers

If that sounds like you, you could consider a new career as a teaching assistant.
