Looking to put your bilingual skills to use? Are you Welsh speaking and considering a new role in education?
Educate are wanting to hear from any Welsh speakers considering a role as a teaching assistant. If you have previous child based experience that would be beneficial however full training will be provided for the right person.
'Unlocking Opportunity' is not just part of our title, its part of our ethos. We believe in giving people the chance to reach their full potential through continual training and maintained support.
The role requires high levels of self-motivation alongside strong behavioural skills. You will possess strong literacy and numeracy skills and be confident supporting students through the medium of Welsh.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person and could potentially lead to long term employment.
