About the job

‘The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.’ - Mark Van Doren

An incredible primary school located in North London have partnered with us to find an enthusiastic, determined and patient trainee looking to become an integral part of the classroom. We need trainees who are excited by the idea of helping students discover things they’ve never known and, in turn, help them grow their curiosity about the world around them.

This Primary School is rated ‘good’ by Ofsted and the leadership team places a strong focus on building on this rating in the future. Every child is encouraged to achieve the highest standards possible, in an atmosphere where all success, great or small, is properly celebrated. Every child should learn to understand people with different needs, circumstances, and beliefs to enable them to develop morally, culturally, and spiritually, giving them the confidence to grow in responsibility and independence and equipping them for the journey of lifelong learning. If this sounds like an opportunity for you, then apply now.
