Welcome to October's jobs of the month round up. Read on to discover some of the exciting teacher, learning support, and administrative vacancies on offer in Portsmouth's schools.

If you are looking to work with children, volunteering provides invaluable experience for those wanting a career in the classroom. There are different ways to gain experience that include volunteering in a school, helping out at a local community group and paid internships.

Would you like to support children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) in the classroom? To learn more about this rewarding role, we asked Dawn MacWhirter, apprentice teaching assistant at Manor Infant and Nursery School to share a day in her life as a SEN teaching assistant.

A group of schools in Portsmouth joined forces with training providers on Tuesday 28 February at Central Library to promote support roles in the classroom.
