About the job

Are you a coachable, collaborative, conscientious and meticulous person looking to take their first steps towards training to be a secondary school teacher whilst earning a salary?

Do you have a passion for helping all young people explore their abilities and develop their knowledge, understanding, and confidence as they work towards their GCSE's?

If so, have you ever thought about training to teach in a secondary school in Hertfordshire? Because if you’re all the above and more, then you’re perfect for our salaried teacher training programme!

Applications are currently open for Secondary trainees of all disciplines, though those with English, Art & Design, PE or Humanities backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.

As a trainee teacher on the Grad2Teach salaried teacher training programme, you get paid to train to be a qualified teacher in 1-2 years. Your salaried teacher training placement will see you working as a trainee teacher performing a Cover Supervisor role within a secondary school that's on a journey to become the best in the region!

All of our training takes place during the half-term holidays. This means you can work at your school full-time, earn a full-time salary, and train to be a qualified teacher at the same time!

Sound good? What about where you’ll train? Our partner school has recently been taken under the wings of a new headteacher looking to develop the whole school as well as train teachers who share their vision for excellence and achievement across the board. Teacher training is as much about learning new skills as it is about imparting knowledge, and with Grad2Teach you’re always learning as you’re teaching. And, as our trainee, we’re with you, supporting you, at every step of the way.

To be eligible for this programme you must meet the following requirements:

  • Have determination, resilience, and a patient, caring attitude.

  • Preferably some experience in a UK classroom.
