Principal Teachers are seeking to recruit pool of qualified Teaching Assistants to complete supply work in primary schools within the Harrogate area.

Call a member of our team today to discuss your options on supply and how we can help you.

  • We are advocates of fair pay and conditions and work hard to offer competitive remuneration for supply staff

  • We are proud to be reputable for our ethical and friendly service

The successful applicant will have:

  • A Level 3 Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools qualification or equivalent
