About the job

“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.” –Salvador Dali

We have partnered with a secondary school in Birmingham, and they are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated textiles/fashion graduate to start training with them alongside their exceptional network of teachers. You would help students explore the world of clothes and expression through presentation, helping them gain confidence in creating and displaying their work. You will gain hands-on advice and knowledge in the classroom parallel to our Salaried Teacher Training Programme, as well as gaining development opportunities once you’ve completed our Salaried Teacher Training programme as the school is looking to keep on people who make a real difference in their classrooms. This role would commence in September this year. If this position sounds interesting to you, the Grad2Teach is here to help you take the next step to become a qualified teacher.

This is a good school, where all pupils expect to do well, and parents offer staunch support in encouraging hard work and good behaviour. Widely recognised for delivering excellent teacher inductions, the school is proud of its record of continuing to support the CPD of staff at all levels. The Head Teacher and Governors take a modern approach to delivering the curriculum, promoting the use of every available resource to support not only academic achievement but the development of skills for life. With a thriving enrichment and extra-curricular programme, every member of staff at this school is aware of the importance of their contribution to the all-around development of students as they make their way into the adult world. If this is the opportunity for you then apply now.
