About the job

‘In an effective classroom, students should not only know what they are doing, they should also know why and how.’ ― Harry Wong

One of our partner schools in North London has asked us to train a Primary Classroom Teacher trainee from September 2022. Suitable for graduates of any discipline. Your main tasks will consist of creating and maintaining a healthy learning environment, encouraging your students to feed their own curiosity, and helping them build life-long learning habits. If this sounds good to you, then apply now through Grad2Teach to take the first step to become a fully qualified educator through our Salaried Teacher Training programme.

This is a larger-than-average inclusive Primary School that has demonstrated rapid improvement over recent years and is rated ‘Good with Outstanding Features’ by Ofsted. A further inspection is expected in the next academic year, and the Head Teacher is driving the school to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ rating. High value is placed on its strong links with the local community and the leadership team works closely with parents to ensure that all the pupils achieve. Staff and Pupils alike are proud of their school community, treating each other with mutual respect and displaying tolerance of each other’s differences. Pupils take on the roles of buddies, trained mentors, ambassadors, and school councillors, which supports the ‘pupil-led’ learning initiatives central to the ethos of the school.
