Secondary Teaching Assistant

Secondary School Teaching Assistants play a vital role in the smooth running of classes

Schools rely on the professional input and expertise of a range of staff and "teaching assistant" or “support staff” is a generic title for all non-teaching staff. Some work alongside teachers and some work behind the scenes to ensure that there is an efficient infrastructure within which effective teaching and learning can take place daily.
