About the job

“I like a teacher who gives you something to take home to think about besides homework.” – Lily Tomlin

We have partnered with a great primary school in London to find them a motivated and dedicated trainee to start training as a teacher in one of their classrooms. This primary school has an abundance of expert educators, meaning parallel to gaining important tools from our Salaried Teacher Training course and learning how to use those tools, you would have access to excellent advice on the job. This role will require you to encourage your pupils to explore their curiosity in a range of subjects and create a comfortable and thriving learning environment. If this position sounds perfect to you, then Grad2Teach is here to help you take the next step to become a qualified educator 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. If this position sounds like the opportunity, then apply now for our Salaried Teacher Training programme.
