Are you passionate about making a difference in the lives of young learners? Zest Education is currently seeking a dedicated and enthusiastic teaching assistant to join our team at a well-regarded school in Handsworth. This full-time position is set to commence in April 2024 on a long term basis across EYFS.

The school pride themselves on maintaining a high standard of education and fostering a supportive atmosphere for both students and staff. Our three-form entry school has recently been rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, reflecting the dedication and hard work of our team.
