Pros: working while my children were in school
Cons: not enough hours
During the day in the cafeteria I helped little kids with open their milk/food items. When the older kids came down I kept order throughout the lunch room.

Voluntary Teaching Assistant (Current Employee), two Reception Classes – May 8, 2012
Pros: free hot drinks and snacks
Cons: not a paid placement
From my very first day I received positive feedback from the students and staff. I was able to help with administrative duties, assisting the staff with SEN children, reading and literacy lessons, preparation for classroom assemblies, ongoing projects, etc. The hardest part is not being able to work there full time! The most enjoyable part of my job – more... is being able to read stories to the children or play games during activitiy sessions. – less
