TLG Reading is a working partnership between TLG and The Gate, a church-based education centre offering a safe and nurturing place for young people to learn. We are looking for a Teaching assistant that will work closely together with the team to support the young people in a class and act as a pastoral link for their families.
At TLG Reading young people are valued, cared for and their potential is championed. We’re passionate about seeing young people return to mainstream school, progress on to college or find work because of the support we provide. Your role as a 1:1 Teaching Assistant will play an integral part in enabling young people to get their lives back on track, through providing 1-1 support to enable them to make best use of the educational opportunities available to them.
TLG is a Christian charity and as a team, we want to bring our faith to the work we do. As such, we are looking to recruit an individual with a strong and vibrant Christian faith. TLG is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff including volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undertake a DBS check.
