About the job

“The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.”– Mark Van Doren

A lovely Secondary school in London has requested we look for a motivated and enthusiastic English Graduate to start our Salaried Teacher Training programme in one of their classrooms starting April 2022. They need someone who is going to help their students engage with new material from a curious and observational standpoint, to look for what stands out to them as individuals and not just what you want them to see. Allowing them to let their curiosity carry them through different books and reading materials will be your main priority. It goes without saying you will need to be compassionate, determined, and confident to help maintain a classroom as well as to make a genuine difference in these students’ lives. If this position sounds interesting to you, then Grad2Teach is here to help you take the next step to become a teacher through our Salaried Teacher Training programme.

This is an excellent Secondary school, judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, where the SMT has maintained and built upon a succession of excellent inspection and examination results. Total commitment to providing care, guidance and support and the very positive school atmosphere make a considerable contribution to pupils’ personal development. A key focus for the school is contributing to the wider community and this is promoted extremely well, with pupils making exceptional progress in their spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development. Behaviour in lessons and around the school is outstanding, and Pupils achieve well because of good teaching and a highly effective curriculum. The SMT are passionate about promoting a strong ‘team ethic’ amongst staff, and this is supported with excellent coaching and career development opportunities.
