About the job

“A good teacher does something more than teaching; he makes you start learning.” – Raheel Faroog

Would you like to help children gain a better understanding of how the mind works?

If yes, then Grad2Teach is here to help you take the next step to become a teacher through our Salaried Teacher Training programme. We have partnered with a Secondary school in Suffolk who are looking for a Psychology graduate to start training with them from September 2022. Your main tasks will consist of showing how the mind works as well as the importance of mental health. If this position sounds perfect for you, then apply now with Grad2Teach to take an alternative route to a career in teaching.

This school believes every pupil deserves the right to learn from a curriculum that helps them grow, helps them reach the highest possible grade they can reach, and gives them the behavioural traits and morals to develop healthy professional and personal lives after school. They have built a strong community in their school using 3 ‘rules’: Treating people how you want to be treated, celebrating diversity, and aspiring to be the best you can be. Every member of the team at this School is expected to ‘go the extra mile’ and push themselves to the limits of performance and it is seen as a key indicator of the school’s continued progression that when teachers leave, it tends to be to take on leadership roles elsewhere. The Head Teacher and Governors are proud of the low staff turnover rates at this school and believe these are driven by their consistent focus on CPD and internal promotion.
