About the job
‘The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, ‘The children are now working as if I did not exist.’ –Maria Montessori
The Wymondham College Prep School is looking for graduates of any discipline, but ideally searching for applicants who would be interested in a primary role as a High-level Teaching Assistant that starts in September 2022. This role would be a boarding opportunity with accommodation provided for free whilst training. Successful candidates would receive hands-on experience and advice from teachers alongside them parallel to our Salaried Teacher Training programme, giving you the tools and knowledge to thrive in this role. We also provide supervision and support for those who need extra advice and direction.
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.
