Tell Me More About Becoming a Teaching Assistant
Although there’s no set entry-level qualification for becoming a Teaching Assistant, most schools have strict guidelines as to what they’re looking for. You’ll need to understand your role in the classroom, be prepared in supporting the classroom teacher and confidently build student’s self-esteem and independence for success in the classroom.
Alongside good reading, writing, numeracy and communication skills, schools often look for Teaching Assistants who have specialist knowledge or skills. Having knowledge in specific areas of learning needs, such as autism and mental health can give you a distinct advantage when it comes to the application process.
What Can I Expect as a Teaching Assistant?
You won’t be surprised that as a Teaching Assistant, you’ll spend lots of time with students, and often those with greater learning needs. As a result, you’ll need to be patient and have a positive attitude that is conducive to a student’s learning and progression. Although challenging, think how rewarding it will be to watch your students progress and develop!
Most of your day-to-day work will be in the classroom, but you’ll often have the opportunity to help out on school trips and outdoor activities. Get stuck in and build positive relationships with your students and the teachers you’re supporting!
