We work across Nottingham, Derby and Leicester expressing a true passion for candidate development, progression and helping you succeed in your career as a Teaching Assistants. 

Teaching assistants are an integral part in pupil progress and development and are usually the heartbeat of a school. teaching assistants or learning support assistants provide much needed support directly to students academically and often emotionally too. A teaching assistant or learning support assistant will provide a hands-on role in helping children learn in both a one-on-one setting or in groups.

A teaching assistant is a very rewarding role you will see the day to day and long-term impact on the lives of the children you work with. TA/ LSA roles are very competitive so having a specialist area or skillset may give you a slight advantage in the classroom. If you speak a foreign language, have a passion for SEN or a strength in a particular subject your school may encourage you to develop your skills and utilize you in a more specialised role.

Typical responsibilities of a Teaching Assistant (TA)/ Learning Support Assistant (LSA) include:

  • Supporting pupils with learning difficulties or disabilities
  • Preparing the classroom for lessons, setting up equipment and activities
  • Tidying up and keeping the classroom in good order
  • Creating displays of pupils’ work
  • Helping on school outings or at school events

"Cover can always be challenging in a morning, but with Link3 at the end of the phone, it’s sorted in a flash, they are professional, always accommodating, nothing is too much trouble, pleasant supply staff allocated promptly and makes my job so much easier."
