Job Type: Temporary

Salary: £325 / weekly

A popular primary school in Burton-on-Trent are looking for a HLTA to support learning across their Year 3 and 4 classes, full time, starting as soon as possible until Christmas 2020. Please read on for more details on the role and how to apply!

The school have decided to restructure their PPA cover due to some extended staff absences, and therefore need someone who can perform general TA functions for most of the week, but can also confidently take the two classes to cover the teacher's PPA time. This role would be ideal for anyone with aspirations of becoming a teacher who wants to get as much experience in classrooms as possible.

The school is rated as GOOD by Ofsted and is a warm, friendly environment to work in. They are very supportive of young staff members with teaching aspirations and provide opportunities for the role to continuously grow. Therefore, this booking is highly likely to be extended into next calendar year depending on the candidate's success in the role. The school is easy to travel to by car or public transport.


  • HLTA qualification or equivalent.
  • OR Final Year Student/NQT/Graduate.
  • Experience in KS2.
  • Must have a Child Only DBS on the Update Service

The role involves general class TA duties for most of the week, primarily in Year 4 but also in other KS2 classes if required, so the candidate should be flexible in this sense. This would be general support by ensuring that the class is following and engaged in the teacher's lesson plan. It will also regularly involve taking smaller intervention groups on specific topics they might be struggling in, particularly English and Maths, so experience leading interventions in the past would be useful.

These lessons will cover 2 afternoons a week and could potentially grow to more if the school is happy with the progress.

If you are keen for this role then please apply and submit an up-to-date CV. We at Teaching Personnel will then be in touch with you, before liaising with the school to organise interviews and trials for selected candidates when possible.
