About the job

A Secondary school based in the suburbs of Suffolk have come to us to find a passionate Computer Science graduate to start training with them in April 2022.

Do you have a keen interest in cyberspace?

Would you like to teach Mark Zuckerberg?

Would like to become a teacher whilst earning a salary?

If you answered yes to all the questions above, then Grad2Teach is here to help you move forward in your pursuit to become a skilled educator.


This school’s I.T department is looking for a motivated graduate to train, and hope that you will like the position so much that after the 2-year Salaried Teacher Training programme, you stay on with them and become part of the school permanently. Compassion, determination, and patience are key in this role as you will need to pay attention to the whole class and individuals separately at different times and transition between the 2 fluidly, not to mention maintaining the class in case of disruption or rowdiness. Your main task will be helping these children see a new world in cyberspace and hopefully encourage students to realise their potential in computer science. If you would like to inspire the next generation of app developers and programmers, then this role is the perfect opportunity for you.
