About the job

‘If you have to put someone on a pedestal, put teachers. They are society's heroes.’ – Guy Kawasaki

One of our partner primary schools in London is keen for us to train a graduate in an unqualified teacher role from January 2023. The position of Phase 1 Trainee is a full-time position through Grad2Teach and would be suitable for a graduate of any discipline with prior UK classroom teaching experience. If this sounds good to you, then apply now through Grad2Teach to take the first step to become a qualified educator through our Salaried Teacher Training programme.

This larger-than-average Primary School is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and the leadership team places a strong focus on building on this rating in the future. The school is very well-equipped with a wide range of quality resources, and the headteacher's infectious personality has had a really positive effect on the students and staff. Priding themselves on being a close-knit community that draws its members from a variety of cultures and backgrounds, staff work together to provide a broad and balanced curriculum and opportunities for extra-curricular activities and special projects. Parents and Governors are keen to support children’s learning and high standards of behaviour and academic work are expected from the children.
