About the job

“The question of whether a computer can think is no more interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim.” ― Edsger W. Dijkstra

Does aiding the improvement of technology through inspiring younger generations sound good to you?

If yes, then Grad2Teach is here to help you take the next step to become a fully qualified teacher through our Salaried Teacher Training programme. We have partnered with a Secondary school in Suffolk, and we are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic Computer Science graduate to start training in September 2022. You will need determination, patience, and compassion to maintain your student’s learning environment as well as their curiosity and engagement. If this position sounds perfect for you, then Grad2Teach is here to help you take an alternative route to a long and fruitful career in teaching.

This is a fantastic school where endeavour and aspiration are central to everything they do. The staff form a close-knit and supportive team that work together to promote successful outcomes for all through the provision of a positive, safe, and vibrant learning environment. An integral facet of the school ethos is that success is a powerful motivator and that student achievements have positive implications for all areas of learning in terms of raised self-confidence, independence, and ambition. Similarly, the spiritual and cultural aspects of learning are an important part of the life of the school, to which all areas of the curriculum and school community contribute. Students are encouraged to reflect upon tolerance, specialised understanding, respect, and compassion and understand right and wrong. If this position sounds like the opportunity, then apply now for our Salaried Teacher Training programme.
