Working in a school is not just for teachers!

If you have not been back in a school for a few years, you may still be under the impression that it is made up of teachers, dinner ladies, caretakers, school nurses and secretaries.   What may surprise you is that there are many many different types of jobs available in the school environment – professional, associate professional and in academic support.

All of these jobs have one thing in common; they are there to help shape the future lives of young people. Sound like an environment you would like to work in?
