There are many different support staff roles in schools. Everyone who works in a school has a part to play in raising standards and giving children a better start in life. You can find out more about the individual roles and training and open up new career opportunities.
You can choose to work with pupils in the classroom, supporting teachers with a range of vital tasks. You could become a teaching assistant, helping pupils with their learning on an individual or group basis. Experienced classroom support staff who demonstrate the necessary knowledge and aptitude can become higher level teaching assistants, with additional duties and responsibilities.
Schools also offer opportunities outside the classroom. Roles include school business manager, heads' PA, HR manager, administrator and site manager.
