We are looking for an excellent and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant work as part of our experienced staff team. You must have a sound knowledge of early years education and experience of working with children from age 2-5yrs. You are expected to be familiar with the EYFS Statutory Framework (2021) and are able to support children’s learning through a play-based curriculum.

At Jakeman Nursery School we pride ourselves on our creative and holistic approach to pre-nursery and nursery education. Our approach empowers children to make their own choices and helps them to be self-motivated individuals.

The Birmingham Federation of Maintained Nursery schools is made of 9 ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ Nursery Schools delivering inclusive high-quality early education and care to children aged 0-5 across Birmingham. We have a vibrant and enthusiastic staff of qualified teachers, teaching assistants and play workers, administrators and other support staff

who make up our staff team.

As well as excellent provision for children and families, we are committed to professional development and you would have opportunities to be part of the wider and developing role of our nursery schools.

Our settings are culturally diverse with a large number of languages spoken. We have a reputation for supporting children with a range of complex special educational needs and disabilities as well as support for families who may have additional challenges in their lives. We offer a mixture of provision, including fee paying, as well as before and after school provision on most sites.

This post is covered by Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) and therefore the ability to speak fluent and spoken English is an essential requirement for this role.

Early Years education is undergoing ongoing change and challenge, so you need to not only be an outstanding teaching assistant but also flexible, resilient and able to contribute innovative ideas.

If you are up for this challenge, with the support of an experienced team, then we would like to hear from you. Visits to the school are most welcome with prior arrangement.
