About the job

‘Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.’ – Bill Gates

We have partnered with a lovely primary school in Stevenage to find them a graduate of any discipline to start training with them from September 2022. The ideal applicant would be looking to further their teaching career in the future. Your main tasks will consist of helping students that the teacher can’t get to individually, maintaining a healthy and safe learning environment, and enabling your students to think independently and ask their own questions. If this position sounds great to you, then apply now through Grad2Teach to take the first step to a rewarding career in teaching through our Salaried Teacher Training programme.

This is a fantastic school where endeavour and aspiration are central to everything they do. The staff forms a close-knit and supportive team that works 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.
