Support Staff

Enfield isn't only a great place for teachers. We work hard to create an environment in which support staff can learn, develop and grow as well.

Opportunities include access to our award winning training and development programmes for support staff. We currently offer relevant e-vocational qualifications in 'supporting teaching and learning', 'supporting learning in early years', 'school administration' and 'leading support staff'. We are also currently developing our professional pathway for School Business Managers as a new and exciting career route for talented support staff in Enfield schools.

Many of our support staff are able to gain professional qualifications such as HLTA and EYPS. Some take up opportunities to self-fund a relevant degree and then progress to QTS. Others, who graduate whilst employed as support staff in a school, may progress within the Children and Young People's Workforce, in social work, or as behaviour specialists, for example.

Supply work for support staff in Enfield primaries

We also recruit support staff to join our primary supply pool to work at schools on an as-required basis. If you're interested in working as a temporary/casual Teaching Assistant or Nursery Nurse, find out more here.
