We are recruiting for several Teaching Assistants to work in a tightly knit school in North London. The school is split into 3 sites across London – Finchley, Barnet, and Edgeware.

Each site accommodates up to 15 students – therefore, we are looking for someone who can commit to a long-term position and build a strong relationship with both the school and student.

The right attitude and motivation to work with troubled students is an absolute necessity! Passion goes a longer way than experience.
