It’s a really exciting time to work for Aurora St Christopher’s. We are currently looking a Teaching Assistant to join our growing team who are making a real difference to young people’s lives.

Situated close to Bristol City centre Aurora St Christopher’s School is a DfE registered Independent Special School providing specialist education for pupils aged 5 to 19 years with a range of needs resulting in severe and complex learning difficulties. It provides education for 40 weeks of the year and shares the same site as the children’s home.

The purpose of the Teaching Assistant is to support the children with their learning and care whilst in class. To manage behaviour and tailor approach to the individual child and to ensure that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential in a caring and safe environment.
