Job Overview

Prospero Teaching are recruiting for a Teaching Assistant to work on a 1:1 basis with a child in EYFS in a vibrant primary school in Manchester. The position is to support the child with managing their behaviour, and with social interaction, communication and academic development. The EYFS child's specific condition is currently undiagnosed due to their age. The position is full-time, to begin on Monday 7th June, and will continue until the end of the academic year for the successful applicant, and potentially on into the new academic year in September.
