Being a Teaching Assistant can be a fulfilling career in itself, or it can be a stepping stone into a teaching career prior to becoming a qualified Teacher. We spoke to Rosie, about her experience working as a Teaching Assistant in West London for the past two years.
Why did you choose to become a Teaching Assistant?
I left university with a degree in education studies and I always knew I wanted to work with children; I’ve done baby sitting and I’m a scout leader and I just love working with children. I’ve always worked with younger children, and I wanted to see children in a different environment, so I decided to go into a school as a Teaching Assistant.
