Working at Atherton Community School

"This was a brilliant opportunity - I've learnt on the job and earned money at the same time. I've built up some great relationships. I enjoy seeing pupils have fun whilst they#'re learning; if they're enjoying themselves, you know you're doing something right! Eventually, I'd like to become a Higher Level Teaching Assistant."
