Hey, it’s Julie 😊 Thanks for getting in touch! Whilst it’s common for most teaching jobs to require a teaching degree, there are also teaching jobs that don’t require a qualification.

For example, teaching assistant roles often hire based on your suitability rather than your qualifications. 

What sort of teaching assistant jobs are there?

📌SEN teaching assistant (Special Educational Needs)

📌Graduate teaching assistant (education, psychology, social care are preferred degrees) 

📌EYFS Primary teaching assistant (Early Years Foundation Stage)

📌1:1 Teaching assistant 

📌EAL Teaching assistant (English as an Additional Language)

What do teaching assistants do?

Teaching assistants support teachers and pupils throughout their school day. You might be working with pupils on a 1:1 basis, or perhaps helping with groups of pupils. Their abilities will vary, and you may be supporting children who have physical or psychological disabilities such as autism.

How much do they earn?

Teaching assistants in the UK earn an average of £19,519 per year.

What key skills do schools look for?

👉patience and empathy

👉effective communication

👉creativity

👉reliability and organisation

👉childcare

👉working with children with complex needs

👉tuition experience

Preferred qualifications: not all teaching assistant jobs require a qualification, but sometimes they look for a degree, a childcare NVQ, safeguarding training, or a PGCE.

Although some jobs may ask for a qualification, there are plenty of teaching assistant opportunities available on the SonicJobs app that don’t require any specific qualifications.

Get applying guys and good luck!! 🤞

Love Julie 💜
