About the job

‘If you have to put someone on a pedestal, put teachers. They are society’s heroes.’ –Guy Kawasaki

We have a boarding school in Wymondham, Norfolk that is looking for a graduate of any discipline to train with us in September 2022 as a Teaching Assistant. The ideal candidate will have an interest in teaching long-term, as this opportunity leads to gaining a PGCE. This position is a boarding position, meaning accommodation and food are provided for free. If this position sounds good to you, then apply now through Grad2Teach to take the first step to become a qualified educator through our Salaried Teacher Training programme.

Wymondham College offers a caring boarding community. They expect students and teachers to work hard, maintain high standards of personal presentation and behaviour, and demonstrate respect for others within the college. The college believes core values are essential to maintaining the fine establishment they have built, and those values are Pride, Passion, and Positivity. 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 to understand right and wrong.
