A smaller than average school on the outskirts of Blackburn have contacted me this morning in order to short list and appoint a teaching assistant to work in a number of year groups across the school.

The working hours may vary throughout the working week and so the applying candidate must be flexible.

When I asked the Head teacher what she is looking for in the applying candidates, she mentioned the following; 'they must be able to work hard as part of the team here in school, be smiley and have good experiences working in a primary school' she continued to mentioned that they must be 'willing to get involved in the full role of a teaching assistant and go above and beyond for the children'
