We are looking to recruit Sports Science students or graduates to join our Team of Supply Teaching Assistants in Swindon. We are working closely with many Swindon schools who are seeking Sports graduates or students with experience of working with young people as a Sports Coach OR in another capacity related to young people.
This type of work will be a great opportunity for Sports graduates or Sports Coaches to use their academic knowledge on motivation and experience of working with young people in an Education setting. You will have the opportunity to work on a 1:1 or group setting with young people with Special Educational needs and support their learning and emotional well-being.
The work will involve 1:1 intervention sessions as well as supporting pupils in class as a Teaching Assistant and sometimes as a Sports Coach. However, the role of a teaching assistant will not always or at all involve using sports or sports activities. The ability to use the skills of a Sports Coach i.e train, teach, coach and mentor are highly desirable by the schools. Schools expect that candidates will have good quality literacy skills and appropriate educational qualifications to be able to meet these high standards.
