Does the idea of school-based teacher training sound more appealing than a university-based PGCE?
Would you be keen to kick-start your career in teaching now rather than wait till September?
A unique opportunity has arisen for an ambitious graduate of English to take on a bespoke role in the English department of a thriving and welcoming school in Slough…
The role would be ideal for an aspiring teacher looking to learn to walk before they can run. Build your skill set slowly whilst receiving heaps of training & support from an excellent existing staff to prepare you to take on the challenges of teacher training.
If this sounds interesting to you, then do not hesitate. Apply today as we are shortlisting ASAP.
The most notable thing about this school is how happy the staff are to work there. Teachers have great professional relationships with their pupils and feel well-supported by their senior leaders. The atmosphere is vibrant, full of character whilst retaining a purposeful and studious focus. This school does not have a high staff turnover which is a testament to the collaborative and positive working practices.
This role will see you supporting the English department as a teaching assistant to begin with. You will support teachers in class, hold 1:1 and small group learning interventions and get involved with wider school life, e.g. extra-curricular activities. As you grow in confidence, you will take on more teaching responsibilities with the full support of department staff. This will ultimately prepare you to take on the challenges of teacher training and as this school is a teaching school, there will be a place in the September cohort for you provided all goes well this year.
This role is perfect for somebody keen to begin their teaching career now, interested in school-based teacher training and eager to hit the ground running.
To be successful in this role you must have a degree in English (2:1 or above) and experience working or volunteering with young people is desirable although this is not essential as full training & development will be given.
